BETA PHOTO: The North Face of The Egg

Description 

A fantastic clean face with some long routes, some steep routes, and a couple technical ones. Has about a dozen climbs on it and arguably the best face on The Egg.


Getting There 

Go around right from the east face until you see a huge cave. There should be a small trail winding up the hill to the large belay area below. This also serves as the access for the North-East Face.

Rooster Booster 5.10a 6a 18 VI+ 18 E1 5a  Asia : China : ... : North Face
The best 'easy' route in the area, and a great if not a tad long warm-up. Be sure to have a 70m rope for this one.A strenuous start leads to a long, varied, enjoyable climb through pockets, thin edges, overhangs, and even some crack climbing up to the anchors. No distinct crux, but several spots that will make you pause and think -- and the length could test your endurance.This is the better of the two 5's (French) in the area, though the other is easier at 5.9 (All the King's Horses)....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
