A very nice short route well suited, when strung together with the adjusted route "Roza Marzipan", for a shorter day of climbing. Approach: Ascent "main gully" above two cement pools. Pass "Fistuk Halabi" gully route on the left. At upper half of gully a reddish brown wall rises to the left. "Roza Marzipan" route is the first obvious route on this wall. A second line not climbed yet. Max is the third obvious route up this wall. Superb 5.10+ - 5.11 climbing create an impressive though slightly improbable line of ascent. Pitch1: Go up thin crack. Layback and step for left then up crack, belay on flakily pointed ledge; 20m, 5.10+. Pitch2: Traverse left, and then up off-width to corner on lightly colored rock. Traverse up and left (5.11) up to ledge, then up second corner to crack. Follow this crack till top, belay on slabs 40m, 5.11. Descent: Left, then up and right, then down to top of gully.
