Description 

This is a variation of the Cave of Eternal Stench. It goes right from the 5th bolt out to a 2nd crack to the right to avoid the harder left crack.

Start on Cave of Eternal Stench out of the cave with some chimney stems (crux). Move up onto the slab. Follow 4 more bolts. Above the 5th bolt, traverse right to a 2nd crack. Continue until it fades, then move left to clip another bolt. Finish at a 2 bolt anchor with chains.

If you lower off the anchors with your gear in place using a 70m rope, you'll definitely need to watch the rope as touching down off the slab is more than 35m.


Location 

This starts on Cave of Eternal Stench out of the cave and goes up onto the slab above.


Protection 

6 bolts, nuts & cams to #1 or #2 Camalot. 2 ropes or a 70m rope (stretcher).

Nice route. Think I clipped the 5th bolt and then moved into the crack and moved back to the bolt line around the 7th bolt which is just below the anchors. Didn't use anything bigger than 0.75 Camalot although you could have found a placement for something larger.

Fun climb, the variation is little easier than the standard route.
