BETA PHOTO: Kublai Khan - Climb the right side of the face pas...

Seasonal Raptor Closures MORE INFO >>>

Description 

Kublai Khan is around the corner to the left of "Elf Jism Dihedral." Climb to the right of the bolts. There are three small ledges on the climb, the crux is getting a hand on the first ledge. Once you get a hand on it, traverse left for the clip. If you go higher, it's harder to clip. Enjoy the next big reaches to the other two ledges.

Protection 

Three bolts to a two bolt anchor.

The pockets to the right are deceiving, it gets harder right after using them for right handed side pulls. Really fun climb and the three seams are really appreciated.

Fun puzzle to get to the first seam and then get onto it. The direct South face and corner keep it out of the wind and warm.

Felt harder than Elf Jism Dihedral, which probably suited my style better. Great climb. Probably wouldn't have felt harder if I had it wired.
