Considered "Bosigran's most celebrated extreme", a designation well deserved. Bow Wall holds wonderfully varied and well protected climbing in two stellar pitches that tackle the main wall of Bosigran.
Gear up then scramble to the small ledge that you can anchor your belayer on with a sling.
P1: 5b, 26m. Head up and right across the wall above, being careful on the detached block immediately above the belay. Continue up a vertical crack past some horizontal breaks, and traverse right on good jams above to gain a cramped slab under an overhang. Read the sometimes misleading sequence correctly to move right and surmount the overhang. If you botch this bit, enjoy a lovely clean ride into space off of bomber gear! Semi hanging belay above.
P2: 5b, 26m. Traverse left on exposed ground to a diagonal break. Enjoy the easier ground and head up, intersecting with the end of Doorpost and Doorway to reach the top of the wall.
