Another steep start gains the wall, weave up this and finish up the prominent diagonal crack to the lower-off. © Rockfax

Ridiculously hard start for a 5. Steep with bad holds especially after the first bolt - at least a 6a. Took me multiple tries to crack the start. The rest of the route is really nice until the end. The line to the final bolt is quite exposed again considering this is a 5 route. I took a fall trying to get to this final bolt and actually ended up hitting the ledge below with my feet. Perhaps I was physically and mentally spent after the start and a full week of climbing, but this route is under graded in my opinion.

Direct boulder start. Cool couple of moves and then easy.

Didn't read the book properly, started up the right route then climbed 4 bolts of the 6b to the right before down climbing traversing back on line and finishing the route.

A 6a start IMO

Very hard committing start for a 5 climb. Very enjoyable route quite sustained but always interesting. Despite other comments this route does follow the Rockfax guidebook line. It would be easy to follow the line of the crack to a bolt on the adjacent route 6b+! But the route crosses above the crack to the next bolt as shown in the guidebook.

Start should give it a 6a.

An overhanging 5 would have big jugs - the start of this doesn't, and is probably 6a. The first bolt is too high, and hard to clip, but there's a thread lower down that can protect this. I aided this first section, but not before I'd worn myself out, so ended up resting on the next bit. The correct route higher up is far from obvious, the line shown in the RF mini guide can't be right. I followed the lower diagonal crack to where it widens and becomes less defined, then moved up and left, traversed the big flake, and then hand traversed rightwards (attempting to follow the RF line). Good route (depending on where it goes!), possibly better to start up Neu ne Marc to make the grade more consistent. I made it look so desperate that Carmen declined to follow :-)

very overhanging start, desperate but can be by passed by coming in from the left

Strenious and sustained. Top, out of keeping with the rest of the route (harder / bolder). Used previous routes lower off left of this one's.
