Description Suggest change

New, mostly bolted and well protected route. Climbs the black streak to roof and finishes up arete and face. Start with a mantel past 1st bolt and follow the well protected black streak (bolts): layback up to a rest, make a committing move out right on tiny footholds and head up the technical stem box to roof. Put pro under roof and head left to a rest with pro in horizontal. Smear up the bouldery arete and finish with thin edges on face.
3 equally hard cruxes requiring a variety of techniques.

Location Suggest change
