BETA PHOTO: The climb takes the left route.


Climb the slab on the left.

The start is steep, but soon eases to more normal slab climbing.


Located on the slab on the right, this line takes the left side.


7 bolts, double anchors.

I believe this route is called "Graupel with This" and 10c. Located just left of Autumn Storm with a steeper more bouldery start. Boulder up, past a lone bolt then trend right up the green slab past six more bolts. Optional start of Autumn Storm's first two bolts then continuing on also works well.

Just did this route and loved it! We did it with the Autumn Storm start. Didn't feel 10c that way. Maybe 10a/b? I really struggle on C's, so I'm guessing a little easier. I'll have to try it the other way next time.

Do it!

It's a pretty good route so I feel like it deserves a better description.

Start with a side pull, clip the first bolt and go up over a bulge. From there easy terrain brings you to some vertical dikes that take you past a few bolts to a rest ledge. move up and left to join another dike and then enjoy some great finger locks that bring you to the anchors.

Super fun climb. I've climbed both starts not a huge fan of the bouldery original start, I recommend using the Autumn storm start.
