About 03. Marcheka:

Marcheka is a lesser-known mountain that still harbors several long routes and is one of the most inspiring on the peninsula. The current wall, 400m tall was formed by a rockfall in 1786 that burried 2 villages at its base and whose remains are still to be seen beneath the wall. It boasts over 20 routes, some using advanced aid. You can see a topo here.
