Description

Thin balancy crystal pinching with good ride potential. Very long route with some gear placements up higher and a nice belay ledge at the top. Safe but spicy!

Location

This is the left of the two twin routes (Thrain & Thror). On SE face, begins right of large boulder with a wide crack above the boulder. Bolt line trends slightly right then straight up past horizontal. Two rope rap.
