The pumpy lower bulge of Montgronyeta.

Description 

This continuous pumpfest culminates in a beautiful & perplexing curtain of small tufas. The first half is split by several good rests, but the final dash to the anchor is quite sustained.

Begin up the easy flake. Mantle up, then make big moves to a stance below a small rooflet. Glorious tufa pulling leads to a good shake out left, then more tufas lead right to a smooth panel of brown stone. High-steps & pinches between diminishing tufas lead to the hidden clipping hold at the anchor.

Location 

At the far left end of the Finestra cliff is a vertical wall with ~8 routes. Two routes in the center of this face begin up a big detached flake. This is the right-most line that begins up the flake.

Protection 

~8 bolts to 2BA.
