Priapos P1 >>
|55m. A mammoth trip up the back of the cave. To the first lower-off at 35m is 7c. The full route is 55m and 25 quickdraws to the lip at the grade above although it is claimed that the second half is only 7c+. Careful rope-work is needed if you want your gear back although it is said that a 70m rope will get you to the ground. Take care! © ROCKFAX|

Called "Super Priapos" in the topo. Blew the on-sight at the hard move just before the last bolt. Got it next go: 1st redpoint, same day. Best to do when somebody else has the draws in the 7c first part, which makes stripping the second part easy.

2nd go - although it wasn't feeling likely while I struggled to get up the first half again.

Awesome route and first 7c (ie to first lower off).....fell of at last clip the day before so made sure this didn't happen again. Crux felt a lot smoother this time and i seemed to get more back from the rests. Cleaning is a nightmare! Might come back and try the extension next year.
