Description 

On the left wall is a bolted line that splits at the 3rd bolt. The left variation is Frans, a tough face climb that looks easier than it is. A hard 1st bolt clip, followed by decent moves to the second, that can be clipped by using the bomber ledge. The 3rd bolt is the problem. Beware of the crack to the right as there is loose rock. To be continued.....

Protection 

2 rap hangers at the top for anchors. 4 or is it 5 draws for the route.

It is 5 draws. After the ledge, tricky footwork and a dyno are required to make the move to the 3rd and 4th bolts. Then one must not pump out before the end. All in all, a pumping climb that doesn't let up.
