Description:

Starts in a fist crack on to the right of the Flying Buttress and about 50 left of the Cheiu Hoi start. Climb the fist crack until able to traverse right to more cracks (be CAREFUL of loose rock here!) and then up to a ledge with rap slings (80 feet). The second pitch goes up the right facing corner crack and switches cracks (crux) to the right. Follow discontinuous climbing to a ledge with rap slings (90 feet). Either rap from here or do the second pitch of Chieu Hoi.

Descent Options:

Two raps with a 60m rope, a double rope 60m might be able to reach in one rap but the odds of getting the knot stuck would be high.

4 out of 5 stars Good climbing

but a bit loose in spots and the recent scene of a rockfall accident. Just be careful when pulling on blocks. Also, if you are not comfortable with wide climbing bring 2 #4's. The second pitch should not be missed. As with all Granite Mt. ratings 5.6 should be taken with a grain of salt.
