30m. slanting 3 pitches iconical off width crack requiring n5-6 camelots...or a bold approach. A must do italian arrampicata classica.

Felt easy on second - VS 4c on grit.

Wonderful climbing, the fear can be controlled by either big cams or throwing your right thigh into the crack.

Excellent wide weirdness. Full route this time, lead all pitches. P2 is definitely the trickiest, and impressively run out even with one BD#6 (two would be safe). Anchor at S3 is dodgy, one loose piton, so back up with cams and ab gently onto big ledge to left to make decent from chains (or continue up). Also try not to pull on the huge spike at the end of P1 - it wobbles!

Amazing! Never climbed an off-width before. Had no size 5 or 6 Cams but still went anyway... Scary.. But an incredible climb!

Borrowed 2 cam 5s and a cam 6 of some dope-smoking Swiss guys on the campsite. Good outing!

Just P1 this time, for the warm up. Be gentle with the huge spike/flake R of the belay - it moves alarmingly!

Jan lead it. Dan and i seconded the 1st 2 pitches clean:) We didn't do it the classic way jamming our limbs in like Woj and Jan(we laybacked). Would have been swings if we had fallen off.Amazing to just be there:)

What a battle. 3 mars bars for the grade

Dave Kerr 30/Jul/08 AltLd

Sadly the grade voting doesn't offer an E14 option for this route.

Queit a run out on pitch 2 when you don't have big camelots with you. Pitch 5 was also pretty desperate.
