Description 

The topo as shown in the Eldo guide (p.228) is right on for this route, but the rating was a long way off and it can easily be done in two pitches.

Pitch 1: Start as for Crow's Landing, climbing over the initial bulge. Continue up and cut right across a slab on obvious holds and mantle on to a large, sloping ledge (this is the same large belay ledge as for Crow's Landing).

Pitch 2: There are two crack systems separated by an arete. Climb the left one. The climbing is around 5.8, but the rock is pretty loose. The right crack looks even easier and just as chossy.

Scramble off the back or hike up the ridge and rap Verschneidung.


Protection 

Standard Eldo rack to a #3 Friend.
