20m. The direct start to Suspense is technical and bold. Small wires and cams protect sparingly, especially since you need one of the wire slots for your fingers. Above the crux a bold sprint leads to a rest and good gear, then the crux of the regular route. © ROCKFAX

Interesting, maybe for the headpoint??

Ground or rather 'pool' up. Very reachy, couldn't reach between the crux holds so ended up getting a thumb sprag with my right and crossing over with my left to the hold. 6b for sure. The move after is reachy too. 1 fall

First legitimate E5 onsight! Gear was better than expected (two cams in the slot before the crux) crux was sketchy, with a small pop/deadpoint for the right handhold. Must be much harder for the short. The "bold sprint" was not too hard after the crux, and thoroughly enjoyable.

Topped with one rest. Gear did not inspire me to ever even dream of trying this one.
