The forgotten country. A beautiful place, blessed by the southernmost reaches of the alps. From beach front sport climbing to alpine big walls, there seems to be a bit of everything. The climbing is only half the adventure, the other half is Albania!

Move right and up to a small two-finger pocket (small rock bridge hold) and then straight up to a left and side-pull.
