DescriptionInteresting fun moves.
Around the left side of the detached flake, then up the left-facing corner (which trends slightly left-ward) to the top.
warning: The rock on and near this route has not been climbed much yet, and some of the rock is still breakable and loose -- so the belayer and other people should stand far away from underneath the climber.
LocationBelow left end of twelve-feet-high detached flake which is about twenty feet uphill right from where main access trail meets cliff.

ProtectionTop anchor is 2-bolts-connected-with chain, and a "rams horn" ("pig tail") lower-off piece, which is connected to the lower bolt hanger by a small shackle (which has claimed strength of 38 kN / 8500 lb).
. . (Bolts + upper hanger are 304 Stainless steel, 3/8 inch.
. . . the ramshorn and shackle are 316 Stainless steel.
. . . Lower hanger, chain, quick-links are plated steel - installed in 2017).
No intermediate bolts for leading yet as of 2017.
In case anchor hardware is damaged or missing or otherwise inadequate, recommend to carry a few feet of 8mm climbing accessory cord and at least one quick-link.
Top-Roping: Top-Roping: Perhaps could use tree above top of the cliff as a facultative anchor for protection for the group leader to use rope to get down to top anchor.
warning: Lots of loose rock on slope between trees and top of continuous rock as of 2017, so clean this (with no one anywhere near underneath) before doing any top-roping.
For ideas about how to get access to set up top anchor, see Description page for Melchsee sector.
Protection for Trad leading is unknown and likely inadequate.
