The crux move in the upper half of the route

Description 

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.


Location 

bolted anchor at 25m, route is marked like any other (but don't let that UIAA 7+ fool you, it is a solid 6c)


Protection 

Bolted (perfectly)
