4 out of 5 stars good pitch...

...worth doing. Certainly not 5.10 unless I managed to weave around all the hard parts. Makes a nice 2nd pitch to Hindu Kush.

3 out of 5 stars Decent line

A bit kooky figuring out where to go right off the belay. We dodged the bulge and followed gear and jugs out left and back right past the roof. Sparse gear but adequate - some cams but lots of shallow nut placements. No stopper moves really but several slightly tenuous sections. No real 10a crux unless maybe you pull that start roof directly? Pulling right to dodge the second roof got my attention a bit but wasn't too bad once you hit the jugs. Met up with P3 of Hindu Kush around the boulder pile-up. Good route.
