|180m. Beautiful climb in an awesome position. 180m at V and A1. All free at f7a'ish with very good pro.
All aid pitches can be done with in-situ pegs, though a few extra pieces can be handy. (nut 8 and friends 2.5 and 0 help keep the pants clean).
Make sure you exit left and up from the 2 belay before traversing right(or 1st if you skip the big ledge belay at 20m)
The first ascent was the first time pegs and aid where used methodically to climb.|
