Steep jugs. Felt like the crux was clipping the anchor.

Amazingly steep for the grade. Great holds all the way to the chains. The crux seemed to be clipping the anchor and getting into position below the chains to lower.

Agreed with everyone else, crux is clipping the bolts. Steep climb with huge jugs. Make sure you don't slip before the 1st bolt or you will end up in water.

Anyone know what the route is that starts inside the cave? Starts on the Kathmandu side then climbs roof out of cave. Looks insane!
