  • Description 

    This is a great face climb that goes up between "Mitzietzusparen" and "Freebird".

    Start on obvious right facing corner and climb a short ways until it is possible to traverse out right onto the face. Climb the face via amazing finger buckets and horizontals past a tricky section protected by a bolt. Pull the crux and continue up on amazing jugs. Belay on gear wherever is convenient, roughly at 120'. Continue up easier terrain to the ledge.

    Many possible variations up the next wall, including 4th classing up and left.


    Off of Tarantula Ledge, just left of Freebird.


    Doubles on small to medium cams and 1 bolt at crux.
