Climbing Area Index / Mt Oscar (SW face) / Klettersteig Ridge (5.4)
Klettersteig Ridge
Directions:  Klettersteig Ridge follows the ridge and slabs to the left of the left-most corner.
Description: Klettersteig is an Austrian "fixed mountain route", similar to a via-ferreta in Italy. Klettersteigs and Via-Ferretas were the inspiration for the development of climbing routes on the SW Face of Mount Oscar.
    Pitch 1: Scramble up the lower part of the ridge past a few small trees to a slab. Climb the slab and belay at a two bolt belay just below the next set of trees.(100', 5.4)

    Pitch 2: Pitches two-four: Climb past the trees on the left, then head up and right, joining the second pitch of The Booklet Left and following it to the top.

Gear: Standard rack
Descent: Rappel the route, or hike up slabs to the top of West Mountain. As you approach the top, look for a trail (marked with cairns) that heads to your right. This trail leads to the trail that you approached on. Follow the road back to the Bethlehem Express Quad.
