Description

STATS
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.
ROUTES
17 routes in all. Decent anchors especially on routes 1 to 25.
BEWARE
Not the most level ground for belaying. The first bolt is high so watch out for ground falls.
Please pay 500 yen for parking at the trout center Details
