[Me after the bold section on Route 2 (the cams below me wouldn't hold a coat yet alone a fall), 2 kb]10m. Climb the shallow groove (Rock 1 on the right) then balance left and right to the break and more wires. Finish up the right-hand groove. A traditional VS that is just a bit too bold. © ROCKFAX
