HYPOPNEA 25 *** [6D,A] Weird but a cool outing! From the ledge at the chains of Dreamers (23), un-clip the chains and keep clipping diagonally left, breathing slowly..go way left..then up to the chains. If you do this and Dreamers as one pitch, you need a 70m rope and tie knots in the ends and extended draws! FA: Gustav Janse van Rensburg 2013
