28m. The steep right-hand side of the cave. 7c to the first lower-off.


The guidebook is wrong on this route: there is no lower off after 28m. At that place, marked as the first lower off in the guidebook, there is just a piece of webbing threaded through one singe bolt. The route is around 7a+ish to there, and it's where the hard climbing starts. Sustained hard and tricky moves then lead to the first real lower off after 35m. The grade up to here is 7c and it's the spot where the route ends in the guidebook. The 8a extension has two more bolts and covers another 5-8m of ground. The hardest part on the 8a variation is actually bypassing the 7c lower off. Very good climbing but watch the rope drag!
