Route description

This is a fine route, good protection.

Start between the triangular granite (leaning on the main wall) and the wall.

Pitch1: 30m, easy chimney at right side of triangular, can be climbed unroped.

Pitch2: 50m, 5.8 exit chimney and climb the face of the triangular with several slots for protection, stance at top of triangular.

Pitch3: 45m, 5.9. Follow the crack which is the continuation of the chimney of pitch1. Good protection points, stance at end of crack.

Pitch4: 50m, 5.10+. Head for wide crack (up and right) which climbs 45 degree (up and right), then straight up in a fissures system. After about 25m traverse (up and right) for 15-20m to wide ledge (1/2m wide), walk about 3m to slab, heading for arched roof with fissure at the roof's joint to the slab, some 4m above ledge. Climb slab (5.10+ cru10) to "hanging belay" at fissure. Attention! no protection at all for the last 10m before stance. Stance is about 20m from the left and lower edge of roof.

Pitch5: 50m, 5.9+. Traverse left along fissure. At end of fissure continue straight up, then about 200m easy(5.6) up and right to shoulder of Crag.
