Description 

This long and winding sport route doesn't really have a stand-out crux but multiple tricky sections that might make you study the rock to the find the line. The holds are all decent sized when you find them. The upper face which is a little steeper and climbs through slanting rails is particularly good. Be careful when lowering. Even with a 60m rope I had to down climb a bit.


Location 

Start above the huge boulders in the middle below the wall. It is the only completely bolted line.


Protection 

about 12 bolts, chain anchors

This route takes much more rope to lower than the routes to the left, which the book says are longer. Better hope you have one of those "long" 60's. When lowering, unclipping some of the draws way right might give more rope, and staying clipped to the other side will help get you back to the belay spot. The climbing is very interesting and sustained.
12 bolts + chains.
