Near the belay on the first pitch of Liedekerke

Description 

A classic route at a modest grade, and, two pitches? Pinch me...

Great position, improbably steep, well featured, and an adequate amount of fixed pro all make this impressive line a great tick for the visiting climber.

Pitch 1: rally up steep rock on big holds, aiming for the large horizontal break above at a belay station 100 feet or so up. 5.5.

Pitch 2: Great corner climbing up a steep groove. Steep, but, well featured with great stemming rests. Belay off fixed anchor at top of route. 5.8 for around 80 feet.

Superb!

Location 

Locate a big open corner with a groove approximately in the center of the Liedekerke sector. The route name is painted at the start of the route.

Rappel route.

Protection 

A selection of quick draws and maybe a sling or two.

Fixed belay at the end of pitch 1 on glued in bolts.

Bolted sport climbing. First pitch fairly sparsely bolted, but, the climbing goes easy and fast.
