Description:

The outstanding feature of this route is the balcony midway. You can almost pitch a tent in it. Can be climbed in one pitch but why would you? Take a breather in the balcony and enjoy the view. Two huge flakes face each other just below the balcony. The right hand flake has been known to wiggle.
