Pitch 5

Description 

Braveheart is a great route left of Nanouk. With five pitches rated 5.11a and only the last one easier than 5.10d it is quite sustained. The crux originally did not go free and was climbed with a small pendulum to the right, 5.10c/d A0. However if you are good on extremly small slaby holds go for it. It was freed 2006 and rated 5.12a. The slaby third pitch is in contrast to the other pitches which are mostly cracks of all sizes.


Location 

SE face of northern Zervreilahorn summit


Protection 

Perfectly protected with bolds which have to be supplemented with small and medium sized camlots. Anchors well suited for rappelling from top

I need to get back to Zervreilahorn -- this and Nanouk now both sound excellent. Nice write-up.
