DescriptionThis gymnastic line is easily the best line in the Ankatalturm cave. The rock is excellent, and a bit unusual for the Frankenjura, resembling pocketed volcanic stone (like rhyolite) in shape and texture. Despite its length, it ultimately boils down to a four or five move boulder problem to gain the headwall above the steeply undercut start.
Begin atop a large boulder, and make a series of difficult stabs into less-than-sinker two finger pockets. Struggle over the lip, where a few well-earned jugs provide a good shake. Wander up the wall, performing short boulder problems between great rests (including a no-hands, sit down rest on a ledge). The climbing eases as the route ascends, but the cumulative pump keeps it interesting to the end.
