Description

The most interesting route at this wall. It ascends the face just left of the upper dihedral for "Steinbook". Start in a short shallow corner that leads to a large ledge. Clip an easy second bolt, then head to a giant goblin block which easily gets you to the 3rd bolt. From the pockets just left from the horn of the goblin block, reach left for the 4th bolt and stand up to commit to the traverse stepping left into the corner with a seam that leads to steep headwall climbing up fun terrain and a final step right into a tips corner finish. 

Location

Last route at the right side of the main sector that has a "earthy step" start. 

Protection

9 bolts
