Route description

NE Face


The names of the pioneers are not known. However, 3 hammered bolts and two hooks were found on the route, one of which fell out during the installation of the station. Dave Lucas climbed the route in front of us , he determined the difficulty of the key climbing section, since we used an aid. The description of the route could not be found anywhere. We suggest a name: Motorhead. Dave Lucas reported that they named the route: Battered.

Option 1 coincides with the start of route B7 Stolen Mirror:

P1. 50m. III, IV-. Up the wide fireplace is easy climbing. The station is on a shelf inside the fireplace on a ledge on the right.

R2. 50m. IV. After the station, go traverse to the left and slightly up into the couloir. A huge wedged stone will climb to the left. Slightly up the couloir. Next are two options. Climb along the inner corner between the slab and large layers of granite. Insurance with large numbers. Or go out of the couloir to the left, and climb along a beautiful, simple hand-jam crack. Station on a convenient shelf.

Option 2 is the same as Alexander Orlov's AAA route:

P1. 30m. VI+. Up the crack, widening in one place to the width of the fireplace. The station is flattening above the fissure.
