Named for the lead character in Puccini's Turandot, this route is an extension to Nessun Dorma. The crux is right off the deck of the Nessun Dorma anchors. After a difficult two bolt crux, the climbing eases to the second set of anchors.

A 70 meter rope is required. Knot the ends. It is a full value pitch.


17 draws and a 70 meter rope. Knot the end.

[Hide Comment] With the large ledge at the first anchor so close below the first bolt, you WILL hit it if you fall at the crux and hit it hard since you've got over 25m of rope out. Clip in straight, and send down for the stick unless you're really confident and strong on funky, insecure, licheny movement. Sep 22, 2015
