Up and Down

A highly unusual place consisting of two walls that largely face each other. The south-facing wall gets sun on the routes on the left and shade on the routes further right.

The north-facing wall is a distinctly cold and intimidating feature, the lines are very impressive but you will want to try them on a hot day when the shade is welcome.
