A quick warm up on Piu Piu, 6b to get the blood flowing, and we have a look at the nice looking 7b, Fridolin right next to the easy 5+ corner.  I am delegated cinta bitch and start up this interesting and sustained beauty.  There’s steady climbing to be had all throughout the route, though thankfully there’s a couple of good rests. 

Fridolin, 7b

After clipping the 2nd (or 3rd even, just about where Oscar is in the above photo) you can get your thoughts together for the continuous moves on thin crimps up to the mini fig tree where there’s a rest off a huge jug.  Then there’s more continuous climbing on thin stuff till you get to a near hands-free at 3/4r’s height.  The crux comes at the last bolt and it had me stumped for a while, but we all take turns to try it out and work out some good beta for it.  But it’s one of those routes that only allows you 2 tries per day as it is very hard on the finger tips and is generally quite physical.

A very nice project to come back to.
