Description 

Step left off the initial block to make your first clip. Follow the stellar pockets to the fifth bolt where one steps left an follows the arete' to the anchors. Crux may be the first lieback... but pump factor increases the difficulty of the ending mantel.

Location 

Note the pillar immediately left of the double crack system in the corner. Follow the bolt line thru the face and out the left arete' above.

Protection 

9 bolts... GREAT placement

This is a nice warm up route for this area. Steep, good holds all the way. I thought that this was easier and more straight forward than the 5.9 to the right (Lost Ninja).

Lost Ninja is actually three routes right of Pakistani Route. A new 5.10 was put up in a few years ago. There was a plaque marking the new route, must have been lost. How was the rest of your canyon trip? Hope it was good.

Thanks Mike! We had a great time and enjoyed all of the areas that you directed us to. Charley and I felt like the grades from about 5.11a and harder were pretty close to what we were used to and the easier grades felt a little (or at times a lot) stiff.

The pocketed stone is some of the best I've seen - just beautiful.

Thanks again for all of your help and say hi to your wife and daughter from us!

I would say this route is more like 70 plus feet, but there should be no problem lowering off with any modern rope. Mike
