Description 

The route follows big/distinct formations, and is easy to follow! Excellent climbing on high quality granite! The rock is superb granite, and not seeing a city, hearing a road, and the modest bolting of the routes contributes to the feeling of adventure.
Shares a start with Mamma and Angsten eter Sjelen. Can be combined with Kayser Söze via the Graceland bivi.

Pitch by pitch:
1. 50m 5.5
2. 50m 5.4

6. 45m 5.11b transitions from a left-facing into a right-facing dihedral
7. 30m 5.10d
8. 45m 5.10d climbs a huge dihedral. Stance in a niche in the dihedral, just under a bulge.
9. 50m 5.11d GRACELAND giant bivi ledge! (Can switch over to Kayser Söze from here if desired) The crux of the pitch is the the initial (wet) moves over the bulge, from the previous anchor.

12. 45m 5.10d

15. 50m 5.10c Stance on the upper ledge.
16. 55m 5.10c Climb up and to the right, over some blocks, up a thin crack and flake. Traverse in to the dihedral and finish on a nice ledge.
