Very cool route with 2 different cruxes. First, climb up to a high first bolt, then up and right to the 2nd bolt (climbing up to this point easy 5.10), then balance up to and past the 3rd bolt (first crux). This involves climbing on very balancey feet and very tiny 1 and 2-finger pockets. After this, clip the 4th bolt and continue up to the 5th bolt (big fall potential, but easy 5.10 climbing), then the 6th. From here you fire through the overhang (2nd crux) on good holds and reach another tenous slab on pockets with more good whipper potential. Clip the last bolt and climb up good holds to the anchor. Breathe a sigh of relief.
The name means Vultures Nosedive.


Starts on the left arete of the prow and then tackles the face to the left of Winterweg.


7 bolts + anchor
