Comments: The third rap we used a natural feature to thread our rope through (just copied the part ahead of us who seemed to know the area). The rope wanted to get stuck for sure. It would be great to sling that feature with webbing and rings. It might also prevent people from missing it as we likely would have had we not seen the guys ahead of us use it.

Comments: The rock is lose but it's still a good route.

You can drive almost to the base especially with 4wd. We stopped way too soon.

The bolts are pretty good. The anchors aren't. A homemade hanger or other inventions. Also agree with the traverse... It needs a bolt to indicate there is more climbing up to the right.

A nice route.. Good mix of climbing. Nice stemming section. If the anchors were better it would be a good route for an intro to multipitch for a solid 5.9 climber.

Comments: Honestly, on the 5.7 there is no place for pro between the first and second bolt. Don't fall.

Comments: Even with the GPS this was a mess. Finally found the wall but pictures from our book were useless. We climbed some route which took a #4 had a boulder slung as the first mini pitch then went up to a bolted anchor which then continued to some steep sport route. If anyone knows if that is even a route and if so what name is appreciate it.

Comments: If you are not familiar with the area, plan on a 1.5 to 2 hour approach. It is around 5km one way. Most spots have cairns marking the way but sometimes you need to hunt or just follow footsteps. The last 15 minutes are insane. Basically scrambling over boulders then a quick chimney solo to the starting ledge. Plan for a long day with the approach as well as possible crowds. Really fun climb once you find it. You can rap off the side (climbers right) in two with one rope or a single rap with two... more >>

Comments: The approach here is pretty hairy. Of course there are likely dozens of ways. If you are visiting for the first time, you will likely be soloing a 5.2 scramble.

Comments: The last bolt is pretty loose. It might need some TLC.
