Description

This long and winding sport route doesn't really have a stand-out crux but multiple tricky sections that might make you study the rock to the find the line. The holds are all decent sized when you find them. The upper face which is a little steeper and climbs through slanting rails is particularly good. Be careful when lowering. Even with a 60m rope I had to down climb a bit.

Location

Start above the huge boulders in the middle below the wall. It is the only completely bolted line.

Protection

about 12 bolts, chain anchors

Pretty sure it's 11 bolts plus chains. Nice to extend bolts 4,5&6 to 1 foot. My 64 meter rope had about 2 meters to spare when lowering. If lowering with a 60 those are the draws to unclip. A 70 is better. Epic climb. Epic crag Feb 14, 2016

This route takes much more rope to lower than the routes to the left, which the book says are longer. Better hope you have one of those "long" 60's. When lowering, unclipping some of the draws way right might give more rope, and staying clipped to the other side will help get you back to the belay spot. The climbing is very interesting and sustained.
12 bolts + chains. Sep 17, 2009
