Clipping the anchors on this climb detracted considerably from the climb. Hard and a little bold at the end like so many other Geyikbayiri climbs.

Super popular warm-up or project up steep, large tufas. Really fun and really polished. There is a cruxy move at the anchor for sure.

What a rad pitch! Clipping the chains is not hard or bold at all.
