Near the finish of Sahara

Description 

An awkard and sustained route with nice views.

Good limestone.

Route climbs fairly straight up then angles over at the top to join the belay anchor atop Susanna.

Route is rated 5b in the Swiss Plaisir Ost guidebook.

Location 

Rightmost route at the Ei sector. Hike up past the lower section and take a right, clipping into the handy belay cable on the way to the start of the route.

Protection 

Bolt protected sport route. Fixed anchor at the top, shared with Susanna to the left.

Climbers should clip into the fixed cable for the belay and hang at the base of the route. Steep slope over a dropoff.
