This route will test your ability to remain composed amongst loose rock and questionable protection. If you're not looking for alpine training, just do the first pitch.

P1 - Two stars. Start up slightly overhanging rock with big features and tricky placements. At the ledge, continue straight up a short but stellar jam crack. Finish on easy rock, trending left to a nice belay ledge with a titanium anchor.

P2 - Bomb. Step left into the slabby, grassy choss and then up into the chunky, loose dihedral. Hopefully you can get some decent gear in here. Climb delicately, cruxing through some big pulls on questionable blocks, until the dihedral narrows, and gun it to the big grassy ledge. To the right are the bolts for the second pitch of Bicolor, which you can use to belay if you want.

P3 - Bomb. Try not to slip on the grass, and continue into the corner chimney to the right, find whatever gear you can, and finish on the ledge. Two raps with a 60m will get you down.


On the Euro Wall, just to the left of Climax and Tofu Tower.


Gear to 3". Slings.
Titanium (2014) - all three anchors
