This is also where the route got its name, which means “Bloodbath”.

The route very technical and the crux is right at the end. It is made up of complex movements and requires extreme sensitivity and precision.

The first ascent was done by Fred Nicole back in 1993. Together with Jonas he now looks back on how climbing was back then.
