Cams and Tricams are useful in the upper part. Cams und Tricams sind im oberen Bereich sinnvoll.

The entry is the crux, but you stand only one meter above the ground. Then you have very good jug to clip first bolt.

Die Schwierigkeit ist vor dem 1. Haken, aber man befindet sich nur 1 Meter über dem Boden. Der erste Haken lässt sich von einem sehr guten Henkel aus klippen.

Easy to first sling. Einfach bis zur erste Sanduhrschlinge.

Two nuts could placed after second bolt.

Nach dem zweiten Haken können noch zwei Keile gelegt werden.

on right side of chimney

despite its name its more for Gym-Junkies

Easy and many bolts, but children or midgets could have problems to clip bolts. Gut gesicherte Route, aber Kinder oder Zwerge könnten Probleme haben die Haken zu klippen.

DE: Die Schwierigkeit ist den guten Griff oberhalb vom Wulst (3. Haken) zu finden und dann über diesen zu kommen. Vorm Umlenker gibts noch eine sehr kleine Sanduhr.
