BETA PHOTO: Gerstenegg sector : left center C. Left Double-Fla...

Description 

Interesting crux sequence in the upper half. Lower climbing is much less difficult, but still interesting.

Up the crack to the obvious tree on the middle-level big ledge.

warning: The rock on and near this route has not been climbed much yet, and much of the rock is still breakable and loose -- so the belayer and other people should stand far away from underneath the climber.

Location 

Obvious vertical crack with a mossy slab and outside right-facing corner to its right, and a wider cleaner slab to its left.

Protection 

Top-Rope? Access to set up top anchor is difficult. If belaying from the bottom, putting top anchor at the top of the cliff requires an 80-meter rope, so many parties will prefer to put a top anchor at the middle ledge.

For ideas how to access top or middle ledge of cliff, see instructions on the Description page for Gerstenegg sector .

Lead: Protection for Trad leading is unknown.
