<< Helmut Schmitt < Roraima  |  Jasper > Oliver >>

The crack-line right of Helmut provides a fine workout. Steep and well-protected, the name is somewhat misleading as the crack is seldom used by those in the know!

very pumpy climbing once you reach the obvious sidepull. there is a red herring hold about two meters above the sidepull, it looks like itl be a jug but trust me it isnt. the holds keep on arriving and a jam is possible once you reach the main bulge. no problem after wards

only the first overlap is actually is getting to the next. once there, jams and big holds suddenly appear...

This start should be used only for Cabbage, and let Jasper use the direct start to give the lines more independence.

User comments are meant to be helpful and informative for climbers. I feel it is better to have independent starts to the two routes, particularly as the direct start into Jasper has some really good moves. If you don't agree with this say so.
