Sensational climbing in a shady hole.


Some really fantastic lines for those who can climb 9- and up. some more recent additions by local Markus Bock add to the apeal for strong men&wmn. the only disadvantage is that lots of routes share the start and it is parltly wet quite often.

these days a very popular 8a

FFA: Markus Bock, 2003

climb past 5 bolts over the bulge and finish off steinlaus. (lazy climbers end it after the bulge)

start right of the "bulge", at the second bolt traverse left on slopers past 3 bolts, then up.

it used to start like H-Bloxx but it's mostly climbed via the corner left of the bulge which maybe adds a bit to the difficulty.

very solid pocket climbing. mostly on first digit holds.

the dirty corner, exits to the right

if you find the start slippery then because it is. crawl in from the right and preclip if you don't want to solo the start.

why would anyone add a climb and bolt it like this? well....

save yourself the trip to fontainebleu and get on this beauty! it would get another star if it wasn't for the weird ledge you crawl in on.
