Frostfangs beyond The Wall.

Description 

Same start as needle. After several bolts, climb up and right into a small corner capped with a small undercling/ visor. Make some stem maneuvers up the corner to small crux sequence which leads you out and up good holds and flakes to a small ledge system. Some easy moves leads to the base of a large corner system. Clip a bolt over the top and make a "heave-Ho" mantle over the top of this feature and continue up the corner to another crux sequence. which gains you some fun hold up varied corner climbing and the anchor. Lower off with 35m rope.

Location 

Start at the base of arete(same start as needle), but after several bolts the line trends left and up into mixed features, gaining a large corner system to the top.

Protection 

12 bolts.

There is still a bit of loose rock on the first half of the route, just above the "small corner capped with an undercling" from the description. Still worth doing though. The "heave-ho" mantel is a fun move.
