βeta: This isn’t a 5a it’s probably a 6a (like in the rockfax book) or higher. The top belay loop swings you right when lowering.

βeta: I would agree with John Dale, around 6a. Also a fair bit better route than Men isc cascat.

Reichbaum 13 Mar, 2017 Lead dog Really hard, even for a 6a. I think you're supposed to go right through the little cavelike feature so the draws are on your left, but we had to use the arete to get up to the ledge. Fun, but difficult!
