Seepage

This section of the Auzat crags sits high above the other cliffs and has a longish approach. The central and left-hand sections of the cliff are pleasant and see most action. The right-hand side is trickier of access and gets few visitors.

1) 5+, 2) 5. Two good pitches up flaky cracks and slabs starting behind a block. This one has no name on the rock.
