The ultimate crag for long pumpy technical 7a’s! Some suspect flakes but totalluy cool, an underrated crag. It is the last steep clean wall you get to on this face. There are six parallel lines of bolts, all of a similar grade and quality. Most of the routes have long run-outs to reach the anchors. The routes all end over a slab that will cause rope wear when lowering off. These climbs are in need of a rebolting, especially chains. This can be avoided by arranging the rope suitably and then abbing off. From left to right:
