Central Portion Rock Climbing
Below the scramble to reach the Far Left area, the trail drops and rounds a corner to the overhanging juggy, chalky start of Valgedurs Tooth
. Continuing right and dry all year, is the vertical start of Isabels Eyes
, then the scooped-dihedral start to Alpin Lilys Masterpiece
. Around the corner is the flake start of Song of Sabine
. These climbs join the continuing traverse of Julia Raye's Journey and above looms a huge roof-dihedral system.
Further right, the trail ascends to the top of the big ledge of crumbly coal-like rock and the short, but clean face and corner systems of Petras Preference
and Carmen the Gypsy Girl
. This is also where Julia Rayes Journey
either ends or begins. Right of this is the face/corner system of Francescas Face
and further right, the amazing Julias Arête
. Around the other side of this sharp arête lie the interesting routes of the Far Right area.
Keep walking along the base and around the corner.
