Access Issue: Will have to park near some houses and walk thru a pepper field. No issues as of now to access wall but smile and dont walk on the crops. Details
Interesting and unusual climbing on limestone. Harder than it looks. Climb/stem up a few meters into the obvious chimney, which is open at the bottom. Chimney along horizontally out to the main face while it gets tighter. When you feel stuck move out of the chimney/offwidth into the overhanging wall. Climb the crack and later face to the anchor. It is a good idea to clip stick the first bolt as the first meters are of lower rock quality.
The route starts in the middle of the wall up dubious rock into the obvious overhanging dark chimney. Stick clip first bolt as leading is dangerous from loose rock. Could get stuck in chimney too.
8 new bolts. 2 bolt anchor.
