Warning Stainless-steel bolts are suspect near the coast. A rebolting effort is underway. MORE INFO >>>


Start up Stir Fried Water, at the anchor head up and right. You can also head up Golden Copulation and traverse right if guides are on Stirfried Water, manage rope drag with a couple long slings. Near the end of the pitch at the stalactites below the belay cave go right up three bolts to the anchor or for a harder bolder variation head up the stalactites.

This is the second pitch of Stirfried Water and you will not reach the ground from the top of P2, even with a 70m. Do two rappels.


fifth climb right of the arete


15 bolts and 1 thread.
