1) 6a, 30m. Make a steep pull up to a good hold then step right into the main groove. Climb this to a big thread (first good runner) and continue with difficulty to some downward-pointing spikes. Move right into a groove and climb this, using holds on the right wall, to a ledge on the right.
2) 5a, 10m. Finish up the short groove above. © ROCKFAX
