The climbing is quite easy (i would say a 5a), but when we climbed the route in march, most of the wall were covered in all kinds of different vegetation. And i would definitely not rate this as a "pure" sports route, since placement of bolts are very scarce, so we ended up placing a lot of our own gear on the way up. (mostly it's difficult to spots the bolts, and even when you do, there are 8-10m between them) On the fouth pitch, my buddy had a minor incident involving bad gear placement(his bad) and a torn leg, so we decided to bail out, and go for it again next time.

Aimed to take the lefthand finish(according to the Karsten Oelze /Hary Roker guide) which should have meant that we'd climb 8 fully bolted sport pitches then two trad pitches with bolted belay stances. Turned out that in fact there are 6 fully bolted sport pitches, the 7th and 8th being the trad ones. I had to retreat after having done most of the 7th pitch without finding any bolts. Did find a couple of insitu abandoned nuts though. DEFINITELY a 70m rope is needed for the abseil as on the second abseil we only just reached the next belay using a 70m rope doubled up.

We did the route to the top, a fine outing with some challenging vertical vegetation!
Bern - AltLd O/S - Apr/14 with Peter Brown

got to top of the 8 sport pitches inadvertently by starting on an adjacent route... the pitch numbers didn't add up, confused we just abbed off to the ground from top of P8.
