Mountain Project continues to expand with Hiking Project, and we're giving away loads of gear from Arc'Teryx, Superfeet, & Zeal. Check it out!

Description 

Classic route! The climbing doesn't get much better than this. Climb up through the first two bolts (crux) to get to the ledge and shake out. Continue up and left through the undercling roof, then head right and up and keep going straight up to the top. There are a few tricky and reachy parts in between, but just keep cool and use the rests you can find along the way and don't give up.

Location 

On the right side of the wall, just left of the obvious crack Dülferriss.

Protection 

12 bolts + pigtail anchor
