A steep line up bulging orange rock and the high roof at the right-hand side of the sector.


I found this route really lame: a long and boring succession of small bulges with obvious moves. The hard part is the hard boulder problem to get to the lower-off. And if you happen to need to give it a few tries up there (which is likely until you find the "method"), your hands may come out of it with no skin at all... Don't say nobody told you!

I disagree, and so do most of my climbing buddies down here. I think it's a route that requires off-the-mainstream skills, that's why i find it beautiful. You are right about the last bit, that's quite sharp (i heared they moved the anchor up some years ago, and it will take a while until it "unsharpens" :)

True, the moves are quite obvious but nevertheless it's a very nice, relaxed climbing there. Tricky but also quite obvious crux.

We thought it was a good climb, interesting climbing up to the crux which isn't obvious, hard over it.
