There is a lot of lichen on the lower half of this route, be prepared to deal with some less than typical SPlatte friction because of it. Quite a few loose small edges/flakes as well. This climb doesn't seem to get much traffic.

Also note that for most of the left side routes (including this one) you will need 2 ropes to rappel the route. A 70 meter rope will leave you hanging about 40 feet off the ground

I thought the hardest part was when you are thrashing through the tree at the bottom. I thought this was the crux. I placed a 0.3 Camalot where possible. You could place more than one cam in the same general area, but one seemed like enough to me.
