DescriptionThis nice and long route starts with a diagonal traverse that goes left and up for 7 bolts, and after that continues up for another 8 bolts to a bolted anchor.
Most of the climb has good hands and feet (feels like 5.7) and is not very steep, but there are a few 5.8 sections. The guidebook rates it as 5.8+.
Although the route is longer than 45 meters, due to the initial traverse, it can be lead on a 70 meter rope (maybe even 60 meter? Don't forget to leave a knot at the other end of the rope), and the leader will be lowered below the anchor to where the traverse ends.
LocationThis is the left-most route at the Arche de Noway cliff. To find the start look for the first bolt in a series of bolts that traverse diagonally left and up.
