Description:

5 pitch route starts with what the guidebook calls 'thin crack'. Climb the dihedral and use the crack for protection. for me this was one of the scariest pitches I ever did. pitch 2 and 3 were a bit easier with some nice laybacking. Pitch 4 was scary again, although not that difficult but in my opinion, and with not much crack experience, hard to protect.

For me this was one of the scariest routes I ever climbed! When my friend Ollie and I got down, we hurried down to the mountain lodge, had a quick beer before they closed and then emptied an entire bottle of whiskey in our tent at camp 4 celebrating the mere fact that we were still alive. We spent the next day recovering from our climb and a huge hangover ;-)))

The 11c lunge was wild but not as hard as pitch 1
