Pitch1:Climbs up a vertical dihedral, than a slab, traverse to the right, get up a small roof (crux of the pitch 5.10c), to a small ledge (1st belay station). Pitch2:Straight up a dihedral, than traverses to the left. The traverse is overhanging with small footholds (crux of the route), climbs the overhang, and than diagonally to the left till you reach the anchors. The pitches can be linked with a 60 m rope but because of the traverses the rope drag is awfull.

Descent Options:

Rappel from the top anchors with one 60m rope
