If you like short climbs between a power plant and a dam, then Moss Island is the place for you. Taken from the top of the Crucifix.  Short, hard, and excellent.  Some Germans took pictures of Jitka and I on the last pitch from one of the monasteries. This pitch was easier but more run-out than previous ones, making for an exciting finish.  Jitka following the 3rd or 4th pitch of Sophokles. There are quite a few horizontal bands of larger cobbles on this tower, which make for some good stances.  Dr Faust climbs the slab on the left of the tower in this view, up through the grassy area to the summit.
