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

Description 

Thoughtful face climbing.

. . (perhaps could link to "Center High Face" route in upper part).

Up the face to finish a few feet left from the 2-bolt anchor near right side of mid-level ledge.

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.

Location 

Right side of higher left side base of Miroir sector, 5-10 feet left of top of right-facing chimney/corner.

- - > See on this Photo

Could reach base of this route by scrambling up around left side of Melchsee sector, or by first climbing a route on Melchsee sector, or by lowering off mid-level anchor on right side of Miroir sector.

Protection 

2-bolt top anchor just above mid-level ledge below the Shade Bush, but no intermediate bolts as of July 2017.
. . (bolts + hangers area 304 Stainless. Installed 2017).

Top-Roping: Could use the 2-bolt top anchor at mid-level ledge as anchor. Or could use one of the anchors along the top of Miroir sector, with belayer on mid-level ledge (but this could result in a long fall due to rope stretch).

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.
