Description [Suggest Change]

This is the leftmost route on Berlin Wall, starting on black rock just right of the gully/crack. Rossiter's book shows it as only having one bolt, but there are four (maybe some were added later, though all the hardware looks old). Multiple tricky cruxes, balancey, and technical.

You'll encounter a long runout above the last bolt (we only TR'ed it, but it looks spicy) -- though you could clip the last bolt on Dachau for further protection up high.

Perfect rock, though the top is quite licheny and needs traffic/brushing. A great pitch. Four bolts to ring-and-chain anchors up over the ledge. Not exactly easy for the grade.

Location [Suggest Change]

Far left side of the Berlin Wall, just right of the corner/gully.

I rebolted this route today replacing the old, rusted hardware with modern hardware (Hilti SS KB 3s and Metolius SS hangers). This route is now the primary warm-up on the wall. Thanks to Roy Barnes for his assistance with the bolt removal and patching. Sep 5, 2008
Nice work on the bolt replacement - when I was on this route early in the summer of 2008 the bolts were definitely old. Long long runout to the top - not knowing anything about the wall I traversed right to anchors over Fall of the Wall. Aug 31, 2009
