Scramble up either the dirty slope form the right or direct below on cleaner rock, but arrive at the base of the short vertical face.

Clip the first bolt and make a good sequence of move directly up the face to clip the next couple of bolts.

Continue up the slab with interest until possible to trend leftwards near the top to reach the anchors.


Right side of wall


6 bolts, double ring anchors.

just one tip, make sure you are awake for the move past the first bolt.

Yes, the first move will wake you up

I don't know if my beta was off, but this climb (at least at the very start) felt way harder than 5.6. I gave it 5.7+, but it could be softer or harder than that. It just felt awkward.
