30 m, this exceptional route runs along the left side of the prominent root that leaads to the big ledge above the right part of Shieldtox. Technical slab-climbing for most of the route, however the finsih is overhanging on big squared holds. FA: P.Andrey

4 out of 5 stars .

I liked this route just for the change of pace (less than vertical for much of the route). One of the few routes on the Nyamuk wall that didn't seem stiff to me! Then again, I'm not used to steep limestone...

definately one to try if you're climbing in the 6a - 6c grade. watch out for the 'flattie' near the anchor though! : )

A real struggle for me, but a cake walk for Shen (onsight as well).
