Surveying the difficulties ahead.


Technical face climbing on excellent dark limestone. The holds are fun and tiny.


This route is the 3rd from the left of the highest group up the hill. Just to the right of Shaved.


4 bolts to ring anchors.

One of the best routes I've done in a long time. The rock is perfect and gorgeous to boot. The holds get pretty small during the last half,which couples with tricky feet for a thrilling finish. The way I did the finish called for the worst feet I've ever used, but it's exhilarating when you manage to keep it all together long enough to grab the "Thank God Hold" near the top. Really great route.
