Larus (reclimbed after 2008 rockfall) >>
38m, 2 pitches. Previously HS 4b before the 2008 rockfall. This route should not be relied upon for an escape route! Guidebook description: A worthwhile climb with good protection. A possible escape route. 1) 4b, 20m. Gain the groove from the right and follow it to the fault. Step left past a gap to a good belay ledge around the arete. 2) 4a, 18m. Climb past a flake and two roofs then come back left and up an exit corner. © ROCKFAX
THIS CLIMB HAS BEEN EFFECTED BY A LARGE FALL! - First pitch now goes at around HVS 5b round the roof.

This climb is in 18 logbooks, and on no wishlists.

It has fallen down in the lower sections. Probably now gets HVS 5b, potentially E1 5b due to possible deck out. Very unbalanced climb now, but quite exciting moves round the small roof on not the best holds

IMPORTANT NOTE. The roof that forms the left hand corner of Larus has fallen down. There is a 5 meter loss of larus and it should not be considered as an escape route or as a Hard Severe.
