fine line up the pillar, well done with some courage. but that is not a 5 star route compared to a lot of others we have done so far in the dolos. therefore we give it only 3 stars due to quite a lot of loose stuff, although most are small things you can easily take a fall with a flake or a crumbling pocket or so. grading o.k. but on the soft side. done o.s. by reini and me last week.
