Nearing end of p1 of Miguel

Description 

A super fun easy route.

Juggy, nice movement, fairly staright up climbing.

Great route for folks breaking into leading sport climbs but still wanting a multi pitch excursion.

Pitch 1: head up on steep, buckety holds in the middle of the slab. Pocket cutout to rail edge. In 30 meters, a belay station is found which is shared by the neighboring route, Luc, also a good easier climb.

Pitch 2: head up through the trees pretty much straight up. Traverse slightly left or right to keep the grade easy. Belay on a couple of compact, glued-in bolts (not a rappel anchor).

Walk over to the Diedro Canale in the middle of the sector (corner crack) and rappel that route twice with a single 60 meter rope.

Location 

Located on the right-hand side of the Settore della Torre.

Second route to the right of the corner of Diedro Canale.

Miguel shares its mid anchor with Luc, the route to the right.

Protection 

Set of quickdraws for the plentiful glued-in bolts.

Anchor on first pitch is kinda funky. Top out is belayed from a pair of small glued-in bolts and isn't set up as a rappel anchor.
