BETA PHOTO: Miroir sector 8 Y. Right Connect from Melchsee Z...

Description 

Thoughtful face climbing.

Roughly straight up to the directional bolt which is below right from the cliff-top left-end anchor.

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

Location 

On mid-level ledge a ways left from the Shade Bush, roughly under the directional bolt which is below right from the cliff-top left-end anchor (which is well left from the cliff-top central bush). Near the bottom of easy ramp which goes up left.

Protection 

Fixed protection only two-bolt top anchor, and one directional bolt for Top-Roping. No intermediate bolts for leading.

Protection for Trad leading is unknown, and likely inadequate.

Top-Roping: For ideas about how to get access to set up top anchor, see Description page for Miroir sector.

note: The two anchor bolts are vertically offset, so cannot just connect two quickdraws for lower-off or top-rope as many American sport climbers are accustomed. Consider bringing a sling or climbing accessory cord with one or two carabiners or quick-links.
