An excellent single pitch starting under the low curving bulge.


Excellent test piece. If you can do this, you are ready to try 6a.

Felt more like 6a to me! Not the gentle warm up I was expecting, technical climbing all the way , the 1st pitch on Deutsch Wall is easier!

Certainly didn't feel like the other 5+ routes we did at La Poltrona! A challenging route on which it felt like the clips were too far to the left of the good holds. Quite a stretch for a smaller person! Satisfying to complete.

Agree with Penny, I found the bolts a long reach left too, but my second didnt and we are the same height (he has longer arms...).
Even so, its a brilliant sustained route given 5c+ in the local guide which seems about right.

Can be wet at times, but still climable! Definitley a 5+ though high in the grade.
James Davies - 26/Apr/06

The bulging start and a few of the moves in the middle made me feel it was 6a. Even though the other moves are comparitively easy, overall I think it is under-graded, especially compared to the other lower grade routes there, over to the far-right.
