After doing the Mantelshelf Problem you find your self on a large ledge... If you want another challenge try this seldom done climb by heading straight up between the two popular moderate cracks on slab and a few cracks...

From the ledge step up on to a sloping stance and follow slab moves to a right slanting fingercrack... This would be your good spot to place gear if you are leading... Continue up the slab with some tenuous moves leading to a fun slab crux at the top...


From the ledge above the Mantelshelf Problem climb straight up between the two cracks...


Easy to toprope after doing Kiddy Crack or Childs Play...

If you are leading you will look at big fall potential over a ledge (you may be able to traverse over and protect in Kiddy crack... but then we would be getting a bit contrived)...
