UKC Logbook Description
Just to the right of Fleur de Rodho although there doesn't seem to be any marking on the rock but the bolts for the first pitch are obvious and to the right of the first pitch of Rodho. There are two bolts just below the level of the ledge. 10 pitches, 5b, 5b, 5b, 4c, 4c, 4c, 4c, 4c, 5b 4b. topo says semi equipped with 6 quick draws needed but there are bolts all the way, pretty spaced so a few nuts/cams are useful. 12 quick draws might be needed on some pitches if you clip all the bolts and place some gear. There are 10 obvious pitches with double bolt belays and no pitch longer than 50m. The hardest pitches seemed to be two and three but pitch one is no walkover, especially if you are not used to granite friction climbing of which there is lots on this face.
