Description 

This route (not sure if this is the correct name for the route... let me know to change it) climbs the obvious sharp arete just around the corner from Chimney Sweep. Beta: climb up the arete and enjoy the larger holds and easy moves to a 2-bolt anchor. Why is it so good? Because of its location and view of your 2nd if you belay at the anchors.

Location 

On the obvious arete at Tamarind Village.

Protection 

6 bolts, 2BA.

From the description I'm guessing this route is actually "Samurai" 5b (about 5.8). This is the 5th route from the left in this area.

From left to right the routes are:
  • The Chimney Sweep (6a)
  • The Queen Bee (5b)
  • Gecko (5c)
  • Happy Birthday (6b)
  • Samurai (5b)
  • 4500 (5a)
