Description 

Town on the way to Everest base camp. You reach it prior to getting to Namche Bazaar. About a days walk form Lukla airport. Wall is located five minutes from park entrance on the left. Can't miss it. You walk down the path and the stairs/slope it will be on the left. There are 3 short routes. All bolted all short. I think seven bolts and anchos max if I remember correctly. All could be extended to be over 35m long. When we were climbing an old lady tried to extort a 1000 rupees from us but we did not pay.

Getting There 

Walk from Lukla airport towards park entrance/Namche Bazaar. Just past the entrance and town of Monjo.

The start is a little funky but then goes into splitter fists to another small odd section and then the top. Definitely dirty, but it's rock climbing in Nepal, what do you expect? There is an intermediate anchor halfway up, so if you want to do it in two pitches you can. Easily rapped in one rappel with a 60m rope. The ...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
