UNCLIMBED. After several attemps (first until A free and to B with AID, next attempt between B and C free) the rock higher up was found to be too frail to continue, so this route still waits for a first ascent.

P1(4): unknown, climbed free

P2(5):unknown, climbed free until belay at point A in Topo

P3(A1): climbed with 3 points of aid until point B

During second attempt 15 Oct. 1989:

P4(5.11): climbed free, "very exposed and beautiful", until belay at C

"Above C looks unsafe, and loose rock, retreated from point C"
