Location

this route start at the bottom of the beak next to the water and between an orangish depression in the face and a big ledge (with an orangish cave). Check the picture of the first pitch. Be careful on the way down, the rock is extremely slippery.

12 quickdraws. All belay have a least 2 glue in bolts (more likely 4 or 6). You will find some old threads at some point, there is always a bolt not far.
