36m. Starts by a fig tree, to the right of Gianymede. Some technical wall climbing zig-zags leftwards (beware rope drag) to a large cave. Climb the wide crack for the final reachy crux moves with a sharp pocket (6b+). Currently very dirty, but should get better with traffic. Needs a 70m rope to lower-off. New route (not in current guide)

the couple of people who did ascents after my first ascent, stated that either it was a very hard 6b move or at least a 6b+.
Also lower climb, before the crack climb, as 2 tricky bits also graded by the above as 6b.

The last couple of moves are the crux but the lower wall is also quite tricky. The traverse left is a still a bit loose and quite run-out. Take Care!

Long reach obligatory for the crux move at the top: my wife on-sight 7b and failed on it after many tries...
