The route is graded 5.9 WI4 and is just under 6000ft. As you approach from Gokyo Ri it is all you can see. A beatiful natural ridge line.

5 out of 5 stars Ascent Note

We climbed it in the worst style possible. Fixing line and laying seige. It was my first trip to the Himalayas and I learned a lot about the way I want to climb and what I want to climb in the future. I got a great opportunity and got to climb with an awesome group of guys.
