Description 

Hard start to sustained 5.12 pockets and crimps, good technique will make this section go smoothly (think drop knees). A quick shake leads to the routes crux, revolving around a high right heel hook and fingery holds. The route isn't over yet, a remaining section of 5.11+ guards the chains on this awesome Berlin sector test piece.


Location 

Route just left of Berlin, due the high and poor nature of the starting holds, there may be a pile of cheater stones at the base.

An absolute mega classic by international standards. Hard for the grade, especially if you head straight towards the anchor at the top, avoiding an easier finish out left. Probably closer to 90 feet in length.
