Nice shot!
Is this route on the south face?

Cheers!

Re: Deep view

Hi Sebastian, yes it is, though on the right side (if you are looking at it from beneath).

Re: Deep view

You have told me you have done on this wall a route solo years ago, didn't you?

Impressive!

Re: Deep view

Yep, the South Face (IV+, easier than this grade VI- pitch). It was long and tiring, mainly because of the mental demands. I couldn't tolerate getting off the route so a couple of times I had to spend almost an hour making sure I went the right way. Both times were at these long leftward traverses that headed out from an ill-defined spot. Here? or Here? Shudder!
