[Beowulf, Bosigran, 4 kb]A shy classic that features some precarious, technical groove climbing on immaculate rock. Start at the base of the reddish left-slanting rake.. 1) 4c, 29m. Follow the reddish rake for a few metres before branching up right to enter the base of a large overhung niche. Climb up the back of the niche and make a trying traverse right to easier ground and block-belays. An awkward pitch.. 2) 5c, 20m. Traverse left along the top of the overhung niche past a back streak and pull into a slim groove. Climb the technical groove past a peg to a ledge and than make more hard moves left and up another groove to a belay ledge.. 3) 5c, 20m. From the left-hand end of the belay ledge climb leftwards with difficulty to easier-angled ground and finish up cracks and grooves. © ROCKFAX

P2 - I felt short on it. Need really small wires. Got some encouragement from a kind passing climber.

Hot Hot Hot. Pitch 2 took me by surprise! Poor gear in the groove (No Peg?) Big lob potential.

Led both 5c pitches as one, rope drag became a problem.
Bern - AltLd O/S - 23/May/09 with Andy Mos

Excellent route, with lots of technical moves to figure out and some fiddly gear to keep you on your toes! Top pitch much easier, more like 5b and only one move? Three stars??

Pitch 2 felt epic! I have since learnt that there is a hidden wire if you lean out the the right and peek round the corner halfway up the groove! That would have really helped!
