Description

A nice moderate, long, safe route high in the mountains.

p1: Pull a small overhang (crux? - use your feet and brain together, and make sure you've found all the good holds). Continue up the long sustained face to the anchor. 5c, 37m

p2: Move up and right off the anchor to the first bolt, then continue right and traverse around the corner. The bolts are a bit far on this one, but also a lot of the traverse is super easy. Just be aware of the sideways fall potential, for the follow to. See also: ascending a rope. 5a, 18m

p3: Move straight up and trend a tad bit left, up a somewhat tricky face, to somewhat easier terrain to a nice little ledge with an anchor. 5c, 30m

p4: Traverse out right from the anchor to a short and slightly-steep vertical face (crux). Then head left (to the right is another neighboring route, which is 6c) and up on easier ground to the anchor. 6a, 30m

p5: Head right toward the overhang, where the route again intersects and joins with the neighboring route to the right. Try to figure out which bolts are for which route, and then pull the overhang and romp up to the nice anchor a little below the top of the cliff. 6a, 20m.

Decent: Rap, down to the anchor of p2 (end of the traverse). I recommend 3 single raps, as many of the pitches traverse and it's a bit tricky to make it to the anchors you need to hit. I'd recommend using some redirects and keeping left as you rappel. From here, rap straight down to the p1 anchor of the neighboring route to the right, keeping you eyes peeled for that anchor, and then down to the ground. (or do a double-rap from p2 to the ground, 2 70's should get you down, 2 60's... might? You can see the ground from the midway-anchor and should be able to decide weather you need to use it or not.

Location

The route starts about 20m left and uphill of where the approach trail meets the cliff and "parete" with arrows is painted. The start is marked with a bolt and a very faded route name painted in black. The real first bolt is up and left, just above a small roof, you can scramble up the rock or walk up along the cliff to get to it. Then begin!

Protection

bolts - generally well bolted, and bolted anchors and rap rings.
