DescriptionOriginally climbed as two pitches, but can be done as a single pitch with a 60m rope.
P1 Starts on a shelf a few feet above the valley floor and climbs a right-facing crack along a large flake. A couple of face moves are helpful where the crack closes down. The angle is pretty relaxed so liebacking is not at all strenuous.
P2 Not to be missed and makes the climb a much more exciting outing. From the top of the first pitch the second pitch moves over a few face moves that are more mental than physical and are protected by drilled angles.
