37m. The brown streak just left of Spasspartout (pitch 1) but continue through the traverse of pitch 2 direct up the wall to a double ring lower-off above a small cave. Take 19 QDs. Best done on an 80m rope.

Complacent! A foothold snapped moving over the small roof and I scraped down the slab. Got patched up and got back on but mojo was gone. Got over the first bulge but then bailed onto the adjacent route.

Really good climbing and way tougher than the guidebook 6c+!!! Its a hard 7a, especially if you get bolt blindness and don't allow yourself the freedom to move to the sides a little. It is a little bit squashed in but remains a good route and hanging around to decide on the right line adds to the overall grade.

Great climbing but a bit of a squeezed in line a bit too close to Spasspatour sometimes
