Butter and Onions WI 5+

The route is the right line on the picture

Butter And Onions 50M WI5+

It is located on the arête to the left of Lust and about 50 meters to the right of Lost In Iceland. It is an awkward route that follows two different columns. The upper column is very awkward and over hanging. Super fun but steep climbing .

On the other side of the reef, right side of the right route, is the route Girnd

Pillar doesn´t always touch the ground below, so can be quite
