Nice and easy warm up. Start on the crack to the right of the black streak. Work up the bouldery base and go up the slabby southeast face. Stay away from crumbly rock on the crack left of the face.


South face of the First Pillar. Access and descent trough the north side, before the Monks.


Two bolts on the top of the pillar. Use a long sling (4m/12ft) or two long runners to set up the top rope.

The first bolt you come to is not part of the anchor. Continue few feet south to a pair of bolts. Bring slings, two normal-size ones will do, to extend the anchor to or past the end of the slab.
