Description

When you face the cliff two hard lines (Pizda Bunicii and Stairway to Hell) go up the smooth bulge which cruxes at about 20' off the ground. This line is to the right of those, following a weakness in the rock with some crack and major holes visible. The crux is only 15' off the ground and it is well protected so you could aid it if you need. It goes straight up to a fin that pokes out with a shitty-placed new bolt put right on the edge of the fin. From here go right and use the razor sharp rusty old piton to the right because the bolt you are supposed to use is missing a hanger. The route continues up a fun 5.9 type slope up to chain anchor.

Location

About mid cliff horizontally, it's not in the big shady bulge to the right.

Protection

A few new bolts, a few dangerous sharp home-cut bolt hangers, and one giant piton. Hopefully this line will finish becoming modernized with all new hangers, but still its fun.

Looking down from just above the Piton, this is the point where Merisor and Placinta de Mere come together.
