  • Description 


    70m rope required



    A long, enjoyable line with an awkward, difficult start, a short, hard crux, and an intimidating, tricky roof just before the top.

    Start up along some big, vertical edges with awkward liebacking, followed by easier face climbing to a ledge. From the ledge continue up a wonderful face on positive crimps, sidepulls, and underclings to a rest position. The crux now lurks directly above on the slightly overhanging face with few obvious holds.

    Figure out the crux, curse a bit when you realize the next bit is harder and trickier than it looks, and finally, surmount the ending roof problem.

    70m rope required



    Location
