|Kanaranzi Buttress (South Face)
Follow the crack. Those not wanting to use offwidth/chimney technique will find many pleasing features within and outside the crack.
This route is the crack in the corner to the right of 5/8.
Leadable but you'd need big stuff, a #4 camalot would be your microcam. Standard top rope setup.

I climbed this without first consulting the guidebook because it looked fun, and had concluded a rating of 5.8. I was a little surprised to see that it was marked as a 7.
Anyway, ratings aside, the crux on this is pretty interesting and requires some creative body positions and maneuvering. It's a fun climb and worth doing in my opinion.

I thought 5.7 was pretty spot on despite my choice of footwear (Teva sandals). Definitely worth doing if you're in the area and especially if you like the wide stuff.

This route is for sure a 5.7, weird move in the middle and I did it on Trad lead and would say its a PG13 route as my 6 would not even come close to being solid in the off width. Once you are past the 5.7 move that is well protected with a small cam its a cake walk. Climb on.
