First try after not pulling on this for years (when the top out mantle felt impossible). Probably a bit soft for the grade?

17 The Moke

Little gear on second half of the first slab. Great exposure after traverse to the left, where a piton is most welcome. Plenty good gear in the book. The left ending is really easy, i wish i had gone right on the face... but felt better "cheating" ;-)

Great climb with two roofs. The difference in difficulty between flashing and redpointing is much larger in comparison to most climbs so it's a very worthwhile, fun and - I suspect - rewarding project.
