A steep and interesting sport route, perfect on hot days.
Beware of some loose handholds; the rock has not been cleaned yet, because of the few repetitions

P4: 6c+/7a, 25m – steep and sustained, beautiful
P5: 6b, 20m – steep start, then easier
P6: 6b, 20m – easy, then steep on unreliable rock

Descent
With 2 x 60m ropes: 3 abseils (2 long ones and then 35 m along the first pitch)
