Description:

Another classic Kor route, with two possible starts - the direct start (left) is 10b with decent gear and the traverse start weighs in at a 9 (protect your 2nd). This 7 pitch route has spectacular exposure and decent pro. One of the most sought out routes in Eldo. The 10a var. is a must do!

5 out of 5 stars really good

the "9+" and "10a" sections are a bit sandbagged. Led P1, P3, and P5 (to the top)
