Begin on a block above your belayer and climb the dihedral using the crack and pockets. Clip the first bolt and continue out the dihedral. If you managed to make it this far, the chance of you realizing the R rating is pretty low, but keep climbing up the easier rock to your second bolt, which is so high above your first bolt that a fall from here would be a grounder from about 30 feet. Continue up the easy climbing through one more bolt. At a stance at the next bolt continue straight up through two more bolts (a little harder climbing) to the anchor.


6 bolts + anchor. You could bring some nuts or hexes to try to reduce the fall potential between the first and second bolts.


Right around the corner from the overhanging route Knorpel.
