Even more fun than climbing this is belaying someone who has no clue how to do it.

Comments: I would be highly interested in any additional information about this tower. When we got to the top, we searched for traces of anybody been up there, but we found none. There were no rock piles, no footsteps in the cryptic soil on the large top, no traces of abseil.
I could not fully exclude someone having done this, but then it must be someone who is fully comliant to the "leave no traces" ideology and who loves soloing choss also at elevated difficulty. Maybe this limits the number of people t... more >>

Comments: I did not consider the chimney exit too bad. I considered the 1st pitch more scary as the rock quality was suboptimum, the climbing somehow delicate technical and not clear, and hardly any pro.
I had only one 60m rope, so I abseiled inside the chimney to the beginning of the chimney where some abseil slings were to further get down.

Comments: From the first belay, I crawled horizontally inside the chimney till I nearly got out on the other side, then stemmed up and finally went to the center of the chimney where the crack is. I wonder if I really should recommend that variant, but at least its possible.

Comments: The first two pitches were fun, but the #6 and #5 camalots were useless. We failed on pitch 3 as we had forgotten the small cams and the 3rd belay was only one crap bolt instead of the two promised by the guidebook.

Comments: The start is a bit akward because of the loose flake inside the crack. But further up its a great offwidth offering oportunities to practice hand-fist and double hand stack.

Comments: Scary on lead, but good on TR. Chicken wing in combination with a knee bar is a good way to get up.

Comments: Difficulty is to get over the constriction a the start, and the next meter where still the knee does not fit. Once it fits in, the thing is fun.

Comments: Whenever will people learn that:
-also in OW friction at shoes is important, aproach shoes are not optimum.
-without high tops they will get their ankles trashed.
-Smearing with the right foot on the smooth wall is useless, try heel-toe in the crack instead.

Comments: Really nice training offwidth. The knee is good jamming nearly all the time, hand-fist stack and arm bar work both. Difficult is only the steeper lower part, when this ends it becomes easy. One #5 was enough for me, more gear just gets in the way.
