Valhalla Wall HVS 5a
[Climbing Valhalla Wall, 3 kb]35m. Start below a short, rounded wall, on a steep ramp, at the top of the sloping
1) 4c. Bold. Gymnastically climb the wall and arête, to reach a slab that leads to a
tree belay.
2) 5a. Seconds are advised to belay to the left. Falls from the wall, before
reaching the break, have resulted in broken legs: not that I would want to put
you off, or anything...
Climb up to a small flake, a hard move establishes you on this (potential Rock
placement on the left). Use a quartz vein to move up to a horizontal break (other ways
up have been found), and occasional peg. Rock and Friend protection. Relax.
Traverse rightwards across the break, past a hard move, and gain the slab. Amble to belays.
