Rockfax Description
Disjointed but technically one of the more testing VSs at Bosigran and also slightly runout on its main pitch. Start at the base of the low-angled corner groove.
1) 4a, 11m. Move up the corner until a flake-crack on the right wall can be gained. Climb the flake-crack to a mantleshelf next to a thorny bush and a good belay below a pinnacle just above.
2) 4b, 12m. Chimney up the left side of the pinnacle and from its top move left to a narrow slanting corner. Technical moves up this quickly lead to a large belay ledge.
3) 6m. Walk left along a narrow grassy ledge to a belay below a thin black seam.
4) 4c, 13m. Climb up to the base of the black seam. Hard moves followed by a short runout are rewarded with a rest out to the left before some awkward moves up and right gain a restricted belay in a corner under a roof.
5) 4b, 9m. Move up the corner and pass the roof with dificulty before a black vein on the left can be used to finish. © Rockfax

Great contrasting route. Did it in 4 pitches, me 1 and 4, Al 2 and the 'bold' third pitch. Couldn't haul myself and the tonne of gear up the mantel so heel-hooked instead. Al did a good job on his pitches. Loved the move around the roof on P4, and the juggy moves up the black vein. Also sustained torque nut injury.
