A beautiful line going straight up a vertical crack. One of the best to offer here. Jamming and laybacking. A little crux in the middle.

5 out of 5 stars Who added this area?

This was my favorite spot when I was stationed in Germany. About 1000 routes in this quarry. "Still the doubt" is one of the best. I got the onsight with the guidebook author looking on. A really proud moment. Later in the year, I stripped half the skin off my index finger rope soloing the route, with my buddy Auchim figuring the day was shot.
