Rockfax Description
The classic of the wall and spectacular with it though inclined to be dirty. Climb the wall and groove to the huge overhang then traverse left in an exposed position to outflank it. Tackle the 'jump and swim' crack then weave through the bulges above to finish. © Rockfax

βeta: Definitely 3 starts for me. The move out from underneath the over hang to the arete and on the face is awesome. Jugs all the way. Dirty yes but that just added to the wild surroundings!

βeta: 2 Stars is stretching it a bit. It's filthy, and the holds feel like they're about to snap off at any minute.

smoreda 21 Sep Lead Great route! Very hard to lead on a single rope; with four alpine draws I still had a very good amount of drag.
