Coup de Grace* VS 5a
[Scenic view of Coup de Grace, 2 kb]64m, 3 pitches. P1 has no technical grade but is very bold. End P1 belay is adequate (May 2015) - sling on fallen block and peg. P2 hard section takes some micros and a tiny friend, reduces the reliance on the old peg. P2 and P3 can be run into one enjoyable longer pitch. P2 Needs a few ascents a year to keep the key holds clean...

pielander - 2nd - 28/Mar/11 with rad

hmmm what can i say a definate adventure to lead.1st pitch 80ft 1 nut at 20ft nothing else til a sling draped over a small projection at 70ft.literally carved out a cam placement on 2nd pitch the 3 pegs are ok tho which is about all else trustable.rock above 2nd belay looked too unstable (big rock sheered off first pitch when touched)so climbed off to right.wld do again tho for some reason and risk propper finish.was exciting
