Description

True to its name, a very technical route on superb, compact rock. It is very homogeneous, and at times quite thought-provoking.

Pitch one: 5c+, superb, compact vertical rock. Technical from start to finish.
Pitch two: 5c+, a steep, slightly overhanging start on good holds leads to another section of compact rock, traversing right.
Pitch three: 6c, straight up a beautiful corner, followed by a traverse to the left on small but very positive holds. From there it is an almost continuous crux to the end, working on super thin holds and demanding a solid portion of body tension.
Pitch four: 6a+, straight up a corner, again very technical. The first few meters of rock are a bit shady, but after that it is stellar.
Pitch five: 6b, a very awkward traverse left( at least for the lurches amongst us), followed by very nice, technical face climbing to gain the anchor.
Pitch six: 6a+, straightforward, crimpy moves from start to finish.
Pitch seven: 6c+, the very best pitch of the route. Steep at first, on incredible jugs. Steep the rest of the way too, on increasingly smaller but very positive, sharp holds to gain the anchor.

Location

The approach leads past the base of the meteorit sector. Cut left at or slightly before the lowest extension of the face to access the route. The name is written at the base in very large letters.

Protection

The route is very well bolted. No complementary protection is required.
