3 pitches, they go 5.7, 5.8, 5.9. The second pitch is more sustained tho than the third. Head up and to the right from the belay on the third pitch for a harder variation.

This route gives you access to the Smurf Bowl

Lots of loose rock on the 3rd pitch.


Go up the stairs at the pools to the scree slope, then up the slope to the base of the cliff and to the right.

This climb is located on the north side of the 3rd plancha.


Sport. There are some fixed draws that you'll want to use for directionals on the rappel, and also for pulling your rope to keep it out of the dirt.
