20m. A magnificent stamina test. After a slightly bold start, it becomes a race against time to the top. No hard moves.

mega, mega, mega. Sprint up the leaning wall with nicely spaced bolts. A clipstick takes the sting out of the start in these soft modern times...

I'd like to add, I don't think a photo-topo works very well for this wall, where much of it is obscured, or for the ferocity wall either, where the routes are identified by subtle features. The old line-topos in the old guide were much better.

Bring your biggest guns and a LOT of ammo - this puppy's a pumper. Solid for 7b.

An awesome route. Good holds when you need them, but still best done rapidly.

There is a new first bolt
