This obscure climb does not see too many ascents, which is sort of a shame, because it has lots of interesting climbing on it. It has chimney, face, crack, mantel; all sorts of climbing on it. Worthy of a visit.


Sort of right in the middle of the Negropolis clump, left of B for Beers and right of the Lechlinski routes.


Two bolts, one or two fixed pins (thus the name "Metal Highway"...lots of fixed pieces). Bolted anchor/rap on top.

The first fixed pin is very loose. Not loose enough to pull out by hand (I tried), but I wouldn’t want to fall on it. The crack takes bomber small cams or nuts just below, so it's not really needed anyway.
