Description:

Great technical and sustained climb. Very exposed. Starts immedialtely left of POD traversing to the first bolt. The traverse looks dangerous but the holds are good. Keeps traversing up and left trough a sustained section and a first crux, followed by a second one, ends with a short slab runout. Very fun route. Test your finger strenght on those small inchy crystals. Turn your head from time to time and look where you are.

4 out of 5 stars Great!

This climb is way more classic than POD. Multiple, awesome little sequential cruxes. Cool rock and great moves. When you get to the massive rest jug, take a look below you.
Well protected. I top belayed from the POD anchors. Worked well.
