Topping out above the hand crack.
Climbing reopened after flood MORE INFO >>>


The route starts out as double cracks to a large ledge. If you go through the right crack to the ledge, beware of loose blocks. From the ledge, tackle the crack to the right (5.8) or the crack to the left will go at 5.6. The right offers more climbing. Sling a large tree for your belay and beware of loose rock on top.


This route is in the Kashmir area. It is the first route down from the gully (large gully separating North Buttress and Kashmir). It is just left of Srinagar.

The descent is a walk to your left.


Light rack up to a #3 Friend.

It would be very easy to set up a top rope on this one, and a good route for beginners to practice hand jamming....

That block is scary, cracked through, with the bottom edge sloping down and out....

The bottom is pretty weird but fun. The top is a very West Ridge-esque couple of cool 5.8 moves. Definitely protects well with a #3 and a couple of #2 BD C4s up top. Would be a much better pitch if it weren't for the junky ledge halfway up, which really negated any continuity this pitch might have had. Worth doing if you're in the area I guess.
