DescriptionThe route follows big/distinct formations, and is easy to follow! Excellent climbing on high quality granite! The rock is superb granite, and not seeing a city, hearing a road, and the modest bolting of the routes contributes to the feeling of adventure.
Shares a start with Mamma and Angsten eter Sjelen. Can be combined with Kayser Söze via the Graceland bivi.
