The vertical at the top is the crux. If you want to finish up the horizontal crack you are officially on route 18 Dorobo Kasasagi (Kasasagi the Thief) but most people finish the route like this. There is a great rest spot in the middle.

5 bolts. Once again another high start and possible ground fall. Are we in the Czech Republic? When I asked the local Japanese man why so high, he said, "It's an easy hold."
