Very interesting climbing, not only on slab as it appears from below. Check Jürg von Känel's guidebook "Plaisir West"


It's the northernmost route, direct on the rim


Supplement the bolts with some medium sized Camelots. Run out in pitch 3

We found the crux of the route to be the slab below the bulge, not the bulge itself, on pitch four.

For the final pitch, where the topo calls for a friend 1.5 placement in a pocket, you want to have exactly that - we had a yellow omegapac and it did not work, which made things a bit more exciting.
