BETA PHOTO: Melchsee : Trail Slab B. Left Corner . v2 variat...

Description 

Lots of 5.0-5.2 moves, if that's what you're looking for, but much of the rock in the upper part is moss-covered.
. . (for a cleaner route of similar difficulty, see "Trail Slab Face Left".

Go roughly straight up to the top, staying left of small gully.

warning: The rock on and near this route has not been climbed much yet, and some of the rock is still breakable and loose -- so the belayer and other people should stand far away from underneath the climber.

Location 

The access trail for Melchsee and Miroir sectors meets the Melchsee rock at the Trail Slab just right of a small low buttress. This route starts just to the right side of the buttress.

Protection 

No anchor hardware or intermediate bolts as of 2017.

Top-Roping: For ideas about how to get access to set up top anchor, see Description page for Melchsee sector.

Protection for Trad leading is unknown and likely inadequate.
