Gama Slabs

International > Asia > Japan > Nagano Prefecture > Ogawayama


Excellent rock and challenging slab climbing.

Getting There

Take the second marked right past the chains on the Kimpu-san Highway from Sagan Slab. A cairn marks a small path leading up in 50m to the base of a broad, low-angled slab, which offers a choice of first pitches for Gamma Route. This path then skirts the slab on the left and leads up to the slab containing Gamma Route pitch 2. The path from the second cairn leads directly to the left edge of the lower slab.
