90 to 110 degrees. The lower part of Tennouiwa is shady and often wet. But since the rock is chert it footholds are pretty solid. Chert gets it red color from plankton. It is very slippery rock especially on your hands but for some reason footholds are better on this rock. The rock tends to break in square joints so the figuration of the rock tends to come from bit breaking off so there are many sharp, small edges. Lots of two finger holds with few jugs. Sometimes here is a nice crack but not that deep. The square columnar joints tend to produce overhangs. Saitama's HIWADAYAMA is similar.
17 routes in all. Decent anchors especially on routes 1 to 25.
Not the most level ground for belaying. The first bolt is high so watch out for ground falls.

Between 2nd and 3rd bolt. After bolt two, grab the crack to the left of the bolt. Scramble up and get your legs near the overhang area. Hang off your left arm and drop your right knee as you place the 3rd bolt. Your body will tend to lean into the wall.
