This route is at the edge of one of the steps leading up to Dapper Dan, but is on the left side. The start is the most difficult as it follows slopers out left and back right to the bolt. As you step out left, the ground drops out below you, making the name rather fitting - Death to the Fools. The name, according to the website www.climbing.lu "is a saying of the Claretmen (locals of the french climbing spot Claret). Mort aux cons is french and means death to the fools. In this matter, by fools are meant those climbers in Berdorf who leave their garbage in the forest, who steal other people’s quickdraws out of routes, who take out or drill other bolts in routes despite of the good equipment, who make photocopies of the topo instead of buying it, etc."
7 bolts + chain anchor
