Description:

Climb 3 meters up the face and onto the diagonal pedestal at the base of the 3rd dihedral right of the cave. Continue up the dihedral, over loose blocks, to the roof. Using good side clings and hand jams, mount the roof and climb up the easing crack. Belay off the block below the ring-piton.

Not as bad as sbaclimber says. I thought it was quite nice (apart from the pigeon shit)

one rest short of a redpoint... this route may get stars in the guide, but not in my book. it goes from grunty half chimney climbing to loose blocks full of pidgeon s***. On the positive side, the pro is good, and the climbing through the roof and beyond is also quite good.
