Low power moves with one really hard crank off a small edge. The crux definitely is moving past the first bolt. There is also a right variation that goes up and right after the first bolt then traverses back to the second bolt. The difficulty eases off past the second bolt. Excellent climbing.


Quickdraws, 2 bolts ontop

The direct line of travel provides a far more aesthetic—and I think harder—way of travel. Involves a high step and an improbable gaston. Great little crux! Feb 19, 2011

I'll second that, the traverse right and around the crux doesn't really count Feb 22, 2011

Remember that "improbable" gaston? Seems to have disappeared. Route still goes, but feels harder. Autobahn used to be a "one-move" 5.11d. Now it might be a "one-move" 5.12a. Sep 26, 2011

I'd agree with the one move 12a. The move is HARD! Feb 5, 2013
