Description

It's so short it can't be that hard... right? Wrong, this little gem comes at you fast like a spider monkey. Pull onto the rock with a dubious, shale pinch and quickly move up to a big edge to clip the first bolt, phew. Now do a bunch of awkward moves, clipping a few bolts to a great little topout. Done.

Location

This is two routes to the left of Svengali, the first one with bolts. It's short and has 5 bolts.

Protection

5 draws plus whatever you like for the anchor (two Fixe rings).
