Thorsten working through crux sequence.


Great face climbing through neat features. Start up shallow corner to wide layback, then pull short overlap to steep face. Use a set of left-hand underclings and devious footholds to reach for good edges. Fun, balancy climbing that will challenge your ability to commit to movement.

One can avoid the crux moves by traversing far right after clipping the 5th bolt, but that's no fun.

Two solutions possible for the crux. A bit easier if you surf out right.
