Description

The classic line on the Betlispfeiler crag.

Approach:
Abseil down from the tree below the parking area (2x 60), then start 5 m to the right of where you land.

P1 6a - trundle up a path, anchor w chains. Marked as "5a" in one guidebook, not exactly!
P2 6b - Move right and up blunt arete to nice face climbing.
-> 6c variation goes more or less straight up from the belay. Well-protected and short crux.
P3 6a - Move up and right into the gully, climbing inside the fin.
P4 5c - Blocky and fun moves. Be careful of loose rock.

Protection

Well-bolted, but small rack recommended.
