The central section of the crag is dominated by the huge cave of Marci Marc. This sector has the highest concentration of quality routes at 7a and above and is an essential venue for all hard climbers. It only gets the sun in the mid-afternoon and is sheltered from any rain. In a complete contrast there are a few easier pitches tagged onto the right-hand side. Guidebook page 16.

Steady climbing leads to an intermediate lower-off (6b to here). Then the technical climbing kicks in to a desperate finish.

The vertical wall has good sharp holds apart from some stiff moves through a bulge at half-height. Easier climbing remains.
