Far left side of kennel wall...
6 bolts to quick clips...
Fun, thought provoking climb near the end. Find t...

Sounds like Gigantopithicus-5.6 FA- Chris Smith.

I really enjoyed this route. 5.6 moves but some reachy clips for shorter people so be careful if you're leading. I agree with the thought provoking, don't go into it thinking you're going to blaze an easy route.

I carry a biner of stoppers and used Stoppers at the end of this climb. I had increased protection to go left hang and pull up to the top. Nuts and bolts made a big difference to how we finished this exciting moderate climb.

This route is surprisingly fun, the crux is right before the roof at the top, if you stem and climb on the wall to the right it is 5.6 but if you do not use that wall, it is much harder than 5.6. Awesome route though.
