The route starts off at ~ 5.5 and is of fairly uniform difficulty. The first pitch has several pitons for protection, ending at a slung "Sanduhr" (hourglass). Second pitch says in the dihedral, and ends on a fairly wide ledge running across the face. Mostly 5.3-5.4. Third pitch follows a 5.5 chimney, and ends at a piton protected belay stance. The final pitch leaves the dihedral and follows a flake system out on the face to the L.


The route starts at the base of the large, Left facing dihedral on the left half of the wide cliff bands.


Mostly fixed protection, a combination of pitons and Sanduhr flakes for threads. A few knobs that can be slung, as well. Take slings, QDs and a handful of nuts.
