Description

A fantastic climb with good protection.
1) 5.8 40m. Follow the rounded buttress, corner and wall past a chain to a good ledge and belay.
2) 5.9+, 40m. Move up and continue traversing left to the anchors.
3) 5.10b 25m. Climb steepening rock on jugs to a hanging belay or skip hanging belay and move up to anchor on ledge.
4) 5.9+, 25m. Awkward pitch for a solid leader.

Rap route with one 60m rope, using intermediate anchors.

[Hide Comment] Beautiful route. It is also possible to use the rap line a bit further to the west. On busy days this might be a good idea. Mar 12, 2017
