: ... : Platten
5 pitches of slab and face climbing on grippy gneiss. Belay stations were comfortable enough for 4 people (though belay #4 was tight). Pitches vary from 35-45 meters. The crux is at the beginning of pitch 3. Pitch 5 is steep but feature rich, short, and fairly easy. (rated 4c/5.6, but seemed easier)Rap off (2x 50m or 2x 60m)There are 2 dozen sister climbs on this same cliff.
