At the corner/arete right of the big orange overhang rock section. "Bergargle" means many things. When you get tired of English, just use it as a one-word language. Thought to derive from Beer-gargle. Most common meaning is Hello. The route name far outshines the actual route, which is a worthy roped-boulder problem. You can start any number of spots to jump grades. The 11a (V2) is just one of those, starting on the left hand sidepull and right hand sprag left of the crack.

2 out of 5 stars boulder problem... or boulder solution

You can try the enigmatic start with both feet on the deck before moving up, or... as I preferred it, use the right toe on the boulder to the right. If done the latter way, the grade is pretty darn easy. Hence, the former is a boulder problem to get your feet off the deck then it's over, or the latter is using a boulder as THE solution since there is no other greater move than a 5.9.
