Rockfax Description
Short but steep. The crux holds on the headwall sometimes seep. Climb the groove (surprisingly awkward) to the overhang. Pass this on the right to reach a good rest before the crux. Blast past the crack above to reach Kaisergebirge Wall. © Rockfax

βeta: Nearly came off the bottom groove, not sure why but was slightly worrying. Got to the ledge which is a hands off, and them when up and down getting about 8 bombers in(!), with a totem as the top gear in crack. Went back for a rest. Committed to the sequence with bone dry holds (which i suspect makes a big difference), but high foot popped reaching for the next ledge at end crux sequence and took a small fall onto totem (which of course held). Annoyingly i missed an obvious intermediate finger jug. Part of me thinks its not as hard as its reputation (if crux holds dry) because you get a complete hands off rest before the crux so its not pumpy and moves not that bad, sequence readable if you don't miss the obvious holds. Then again i fell off.
