Tom E. on Svengali.

Description 

This is a great route, heavy on the stems! Stem up the obvious corner straight up to the imposing roof. Clip an intermediate anchor and clip 5 or 6 more bolts through the jungle gym roof to the upper anchor. Don't try and lower with a 60m rope, use the midpoint anchor or a 70m.

Location 

It is just past (100m) the mine shafts with the wood mining relics. Look for the big roof at the top of a nice corner.

Protection 

Two (2) handfuls of draws.

Per Highlander: 16 quickdraws plus something for the anchors.

16 bolts, plus anchors. 1st bolt inside the slot is loose and needs to be tighten or replaced.
