DescriptionThis 5-pitch climb alternates between slab and face/crack climbing. The only down side of the entire climb is the rather uninteresting 3rd pitch. Overall the climbing is great.
As with most of the climbs here, just follow the bolts.
It starts out with a nice slab, and there are two variations. (5.7)
The second pitch is excellent. Climb the steep face just right of a crack. If you brought a rack (up to 2" cams) you can skip the bolts and climb the crack (or do a combination of both) (5.7+).
The 3rd pitch is easy slab (5.4 / 5.5).
The 4th pitch heads up a vertical wall with a nice mix of face and crack climbing (5.8).
The 5th pitch is slab (5.4 / 5.5). I think that the climbing is more interesting than the 3rd pitch.
LocationThis climb is just a bit to the right (left) of the Voie Jaune.
You'll need a 50-meter rappel to get down, so bring double ropes.
