Description

Good solid rock past two bolts to first pitch crux - a semi off-width chimney easily protected.
Second pitch is short past two bolts and great belay station.
Third pitch goes across the chasm to the left and up the obvious Y-shaped crack above.
Move across the ramp leading up - you can sling the horn and then up two moves to the top anchors.

Location

First obvious climb at the base of the tower

This route can be easily done in two pitches with a 60 meter rope counting the crack section that runs to the top of Sven Tower III. The lower long pitch is the money pitch, with little thrill to the top section from my pov. The slightly overhung off-width roof (shown in the picture) is the crux, but can be climbed without using off-width technique. Actually, a good lead to get experience on mixed trad and sport, but might be a bit intimidating at the crux. Sep 27, 2010
