Forbidden Apples

Type: 
Alpine
Description: 
"Every rock climb in the universe is attracted to every other rock climb with a force that is directly proportional to the product of their aesthetic mass and inversely proportional to the square of the distance between them" - Isaac Newton. Forbidden Apples starts up obvious corner between the double buttress, stepping left into groove below loose hanging corner, then follows the most direct weakness. The crux (16) consists of lesser-quality rock beneath the large overhang. Trend left to cross a snow slope which leads to easier but loose scrambling. Descended via GA route.
