Description

This can be done as a short or longer climb. Getting to the first anchor is 5.9+ (M5), and a small set of cams to #3 are helpful to protect this short, steep/slabby corner to bolts that can be rapped-off.

The second half is vertical and technical with the crux getting off the ledge and then a traverse left that can stay left in the easier dihedral or stay right of the bolts for more sustained and technical (M7 or 5.11) to a two bolt anchor. A few hand-sized cams #2 are helpful for the tricky finish.

Rap 25m to the ground.

Protection

First pitch: small sets of cams to #3.

Second pitch: a few hand-sized cams ~#2.
