This is a very popular and often climbed route. It climbs all the way on slabs cut through by water runnels. Manageable for the weekend warrior, and the seldom climber alike. The route has been re-equipped several times and the abseiling options have been optimised. It is important to study the topo well, because crossing into a neighbouring route is quite easy; especially to the right you are very close to other climbs. These are very recognisable by their rows of bolts if you look properly.
