Description

This is an undeniably special spot. It consists of a big, right-facing corner, then large sets of roofs and lastly on the right side of the cove, a nice black face split by cracks and roofs. Most these routes stay dry even in the heartiest of storms. The place is named after Khumbu, the dog who chased rocks and whined when lightning rumbled. She spent the night up at the cliffs a couple times when she chased deer/elk and did not come when called.

Getting There

It is just to the right of Waves Once Lapped Here. This is also where the boulder hopping/scrambling gully reaches the base of the cliff.
