250m, 6 pitches. The first pitch climbs some nondescript cracks and corners to a stance at the bottom of the long left-facing corner that goes up just right of 'Halvmånen'. Follow the big corner for a few very sustained pitches. Solid in its grade (6 or E2 5c). This classic route has several variations on the last two pitches where the original routes goes left in the leftmost left-facing corner. From left to right: 'Ikaros' (straight up in the next corner to the right from the original route), 'Dark side of the moon' (the big chimney further right), and 'Kairos' (the rightmost corner).

(On the top pitch of the original finish there is a harder variation instead of traversing the slab, going to the flake direct is probably E3/4 6a.)

βeta: Super sustained route and long pitches. Bring enough gear. Also small cams, but nothing big. One #3 is enough. It just keeps and keeps on going.

ThunderBeest 3 Aug Lead G/U What an amazing line! I decided to try Ikaros instead of the normal finish, but due to some wrong reading of the topo I got myself in Thanatos. After leading all the pitches, not having jam gloves with me and not many #2 cams I had to give up after several falls and made a pendel to get back into Flygende Hollenderen. It was only the next day that people told us we were on Thanatos. I was utterly stunned how hard a 7- on Baugen could be, being shut down on 'Ikaros'.
