Description

An area classic and probably one of the best routes on both of the walls.

Start inside the big dihedral. Get some high jugs to get onto the ledge above. Plug some gear to get up to the first bolt under the roof. Start the sustained and tricky crux below the roof. Continue up and left to next dihedral and get some more gear before reaching the final bolt to the anchors. This will keep your attention from the first bolt to the finish.

Protection

4 bolts, long runners, and a single rack from medium to big hands size. A 60m rope will get you down from the two bolt anchors just below the top.
