The crux move in the upper half of the route

Melkaeli 6c 5.11b 6c 23 VIII- E3 5c  Europe : Switzerland : ... : Bonistock / Melchsee-Frutt
One of Melchsee's (many) gems, and as a bonus for the lazy, is in the second sector, a very short approach. Unfortunately the upper crux section is often wet, so if you are there and it is dry and the grade suits you, it is an absolute "muss" Entertaining throughought, there is an interesting move on an obvious sidepull in the lower, vertical section, and a gorgous, overhanging upper section with a distinct crux pull just before it eases off into vertical terrain again....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
