The best route on grit. Bold and sparse gear i only could place 329 pieces on the lead... I actually made a replica of the crux in my cellar so i could link it! Pre roped for 2 years before final lead .... Very very hard for a M ... more like mild very moderate / Difficult ... Best route in the world maybe ?
