Matze Bär on the 2nd ascent of Calamity

Description 

When climbing this one, Do. Not. Fall... Ever.

This rig is dangerous. Please do not attempt unless you are quite confident that you can climb it. You can step off during the first few moves, but after that, just don't fall.

Above the edgy blocks and the dark, deep, narrow pit, locate the low rails which are the low stand start to the line.

Pull on and reach up to a nice incut crimp. Trend left to a large, flat ledge/pinch and match. Lurch up to the bad seam behind the large left facing feature, and then grab high to the positive top part of the feature (afterward bump you left up higher into a quality undercling in the seam). Pull high to gain two jams in a horizontal crack (jams also have positive edges). Top out.

Calamity

Protection 

There is no protecting this one. I suppose with an army of pads it would be less heady, but you would still have the pit to deal with...
