Description:

A solid 5.9, sustained and exposed. P1: Follow a right-facing corner to a ledge, then move left to belay anchors. P2: Climb the face to another more leaning corner, follow the corner to the top and a mantley finish. A single 60-meter rope is barely enough for the rap to the bottom.

4 out of 5 stars Primitive Paradox

1st pitch no problem. Second pitch there is some confusion as to which route is PP. the boulder corner was all wet. the atlas says PP is more to the right with an undercling. went over to the undercling.
