Rockfax Description
An exceptional mountain VS with a boulder problem start! Begin at the toe of a low rightward-rising ramp.
1) 5a, 28m. Make a couple of hard bouldery moves up the wall to gain the ramp. Move up the ramp to a corner. Climb the corner and, at its end, step right to another that is followed to a good ledge and block belay.
2) 4c, 35m. Take a slim ramp right of the arete to below a bulge. Pass the bulge via a thin crack which leads into a corner system. Climb the corner until it bulges and move right to a ledge on the arete. Traverse right below a leaning wall for 8m to where an exit upwards can be made to the top. © Rockfax
