Description 

Whoever Hans Laub was, he was a badass. This route is rated 4+ in the UIAA grading system, and is NOT easy for that grade. Talk about sandbagging. It's definitely doable though, but you need some guts.
Climb the easy slab arete just right of the end of the tower to reach the first anchor. Slopey huh? Well the second pitch is more vertical and just as slopey and harder to protect. Enjoy!

Location 

The very first route on the crag, just right of the tower.

Protection 

1 ring + tricams, nuts, cams if you like.
