Description:

Starts left of Jungle Mountaineering. Climbs through roof (5.9,5.8). There is now a new set of anchors just over the roof which allows you to do this climb with a 60 M rope. If you are doing both pitches, I recommend that you climb P1 to the old anchors, as they are at a ledge (the new bolts are a hanging belay, not comfortable). When you rap from P2, rap to the new anchors to get to the ground with a single 60.

5 out of 5 stars No problems reading the roof

THere are really no issues with this climb now that it has retrobolted anchors right over the roof. You can do this climb with a single 60. We used a 70m.

I was however, not thrilled with the generous bolt spacing from the last bolt on the face to the bolt on the roof. It's a 20 foot runout on easy climbing, but, this shorty had to S..T..R..E..T..C..H to reach the bolt. I was totally fine, but, a fall would not have been much fun. Pulling the roof was fine. I expected giant jugs, didn't quite live up to my expectations. I thought P2 was a fine pitch, perfect for a new and/or nervous leader. Jugs galore.
