Yesterday's Groove retrobolted, again!

This classic was originally done with about 12 bolts in the 2 corner pitches and load of cams in breaks, a top pitch was added later. Then the whole thing was retrobolted with about 27 carrots to make a rarely repeated sport route. It' now had 45 Ubolts placed to make it a lot saner and more classic. Face climbing and a bit of bridging, it gets sun at 3pm, 20 minute flat walk-in, 3 or 5 stars depending on your system. Take double ropes fro rapin, 15 draw and ( 2 x 2 Ubolt) belay gear.The glue all seems to have set so put on your good shoes and enjoy.

I can attest that this super classic corner will be that much better with U's was a total
battle fiddling on hangers mid crux. I think the last pitch is nails for the grade!! Thanks for
the hard work will have to have a rematch with the last pitch now.

This is a really awesome climb. A stonking line and quite hard at the grade, especially that second pitch. The overall package is certainly 5 stars, especially if you're lucky enough, like I was, to repeat it with Mikl himself.
Take your walking shoes if 23 is your limit though...
