Long route up the left side of the formation. Bolt count is approximate - bring extra draws.

This was a retrobolted old route, FA unknown, you can still see some old bolt holes. Also, the route length is 105', you can't quite get to the ground with a 60m rope, but you can get to the ledge shortly off the ground.

I can confirm that is more than 30m to the chains. Greg's 105' seems right.

I thought Rotten Banana's was slightly more difficult than Bananarama.
I agree with the beta on the rope length. We had a 60m and it was a rope stretcher. My belayer stood on the hump/ledge to meet me. The 70m would have made it no problem.

This does have a thinnish move about 3/4 of the way up that's "harder" than anything on Bananarama.
Also note that it shares the last bolt with Bananarama (and yes, your belayer should tie in if you're on a 60m)
