Description Suggest change

This is a light colored formation seen to the right of the pointed formation described in the West Mongolia approach. It can be identified by crack on the upper left face. This is "Yellow Peril". "Asian Friends" is an excellent 5.6, if the bolts are still there.
Other routes have also been done on this formation.
A wash through a small Valley leads to the boulder gully at the base.

Getting There Suggest change
