<< None < None | Nea > Spectre >>
A great and popular climb up a series of ribs on the left-hand side of the buttress. Start at the base of a chimney that leads up to the base of Nea.
1) 4b, 15m. On the left wall are two parallel cracks. Climb them to a niche, then step into the right crack. Continue past a tree and belay on the ledge.
2) 4c, 12m. Step up the groove onto a sloping ledge and traverse right to the arete (good cams in break). Follow the arete up on small holds, and even smaller wires, to a large ledge and belay above the arete.
3) 4b, 18m. Move right across the ledge and climb up stepped slabby rock to below a prominent corner. Follow the corner until you are forced to make a step right to below a hanging groove. Follow the groove in the arete to the large sloping ledge. Either belay here, or continue up P4 to the top.
4) 4a, 15m. Shuffle right along the sloping ledge to a corner on the right, step back left then climb straight up to the large ledge (belay/abseil on a tree to the left).
