Fiona beginning her journey to find the elusive 45...

Description 

Congratulations, Mayor. You've just been elected king of jugtown.

Romp up 'n' left on impossibly good face holds (needs a stick clip or a good couple of brawn-ey spotters for that first bolt) until you get into the bizness. Roll over a bulge (crux), pinch that pipe, and collect $200 for passing "Go" AND for sending brilliant those giant tufa jugs up to the anchor. Clip the chains and bask in transient, fleeting glory. Then go wet yourself (for fear? for fun?) on "Feuerdorn," supposedly another "11d" further right, up in the cave of doom.

Location 

On the extreme left side of the cave; below a pedestal. Clearly marked on the wall in blue.

Protection 

Nine bolts + a 2-bolt/1-'biner anchor. Tough, but not impossible, to clean on lower.
