Me just above the start of "Sanbu/Three Step" with my friend Ming finishing up "Qibu/The Start."   Route 13 in the topo  Me at the start of "Three Step" with my friend Ming finishing up the final moves on "Sanbu/The Start." <br /> <br />"Three Step" moves straight up to the overhang with the right-leaning crack, while "The Start" follows a bolt line down and out of frame to the right of the photo.  Route 14 in the topo.  A shot from a distance of climbers on "The Grungy Cave." The awkward cave crux is clearly visible at the top of the route.
