Very good route, but -way- over bolted! I'd heard a lot about this route, and it is supposed to be the 'classic' of the Grimsel area, the climbing is excellent. The 30 meter crack and the Schwarze Kante are both excellent pitches. The top 3 pitches of the route, where it steepens from slab to face climbing is nice, but considerably easier -despite the similarity in grades. A great route, well worth doing, but in my opinion completely over bolted! That ruined the feel for me a little bit.
