The most photogenic whip ever.


4 stars is not a high enough rating for this route. Super-Mega-Classic endurance testpiece would be the description I would give it. Aegialis starts up large tufas offering several good rests but after the first 40' the real endurance feast begins with wildly overhanging moves up smaller tufa fins. If your really enginuitive you might be able to find a few semi-rests through the middle section of this route but the pump clock is ticking. Luckily the route finishes on better holds with more good rests so you can get something back to clip the anchor. Enjoy!


The first route on the left side of the cave.


I think there were 16 bolts, to a 2 bolt anchor.
