BETA PHOTO: Miroir sector 8 Y. Right Connect from Melchsee Z...


Thoughtful slab / face moves.

. . (Perhaps could link from Center Low Face route in lower part).

Up to finish 3-5 feet left of 2-bolt anchor neat top of climb, wandering from side-to-side to find easier climbing.
Variation: finishing direct to 2-bolt top anchor is harder, like 5.8.

warning: The rock on and near this route has not been climbed much yet, and some of the rock is still breakable and loose -- so the belayer and other people should stand far away from underneath the climber.


Start on mid-level ledge about 25 feet left from two-bolt anchor near right end of ledge. Left of large bush (small tree?).

Two-bolts-with-mussy hooks top anchor but only one intermediate bolt as of July 2017.
. . (bolts + hangers are 304 Stainless. Anchor installed 2016, directional bolt 2017).

Top-Roping: Could use the 2-bolt anchor near top of cliff a bit right from bush as top anchor. There is a bolt below left from that which could be used for directional protection.

For ideas about how to get access to set up top anchor, see Description page for Miroir sector.

Protection for Trad leading is unknown and likely inadequate.
