Start at a groove containing a small bush. Improves the 3 star regular route, if that is indeed possible!
1) 3+, 30m. Climb the wall to a short groove. Up this to a ledge and continue up the broken groove to reach a good ledge.
2) 4+, 30m. Climb left across the groove and up the arete (pegs) to a ledge. Take care with loose rock on this pitch.
3) 4, 30m. Climb directly up the grooves above to reach the large ledge mention on the normal start.
Not in current guidebook.


We made it 05/09
The information about ledge in the internet are a little bit confusing. We found after pitch 8 (breakfast place) shiny new bolts. (in the edwards finish there are not always bolts) We need 45 minutes from the parking place to the route. The about 3 and a half hour for the directa. For the edwards finish we need another 2 Hours an 1 and a half our for the descent.

The View is beautiful from the top but next Time i skip the edwards finish
