BETA PHOTO: Chamonix. German for "a whale's vagina"

Description 

Starts right next to The Roof, following edges and flakes up and to the right, then straight up with precise thin holds and edges.

The crux is getting up the sparse face that dominates the upper half of the climb.

Lots of fun


Location 

A few feet to the right of The Roof, it's the obvious line of flakes and edges.


Protection 

A couple haggard looking trees can be slung for a top rope anchor.
