Description

To find 'Kauk Her', head right from the boulder atop the trail and locate the third bolted route, directly right of a scary 2 bolt desperate route.

This route is in your face from the get go. Upon reaching the large hueco, you can shake out for the upper half which overhangs a little. Clipping the bolts on this route requires committing moves, if you are not solid at 5.11, I hope you're feeling very strong. The falls from clipping stances could be pretty large (20 footers), especially the last one, which you can either stretch hard for the bolt, or make the final move to the lip and then clip the bolt, hoping you don't fall. This is a good route on nice rock and cool moves. Enjoy.

Protection

4 bolts (homemade hangers) - 2 bolt anchor.

No home made hangers on this guy. The bolt positions are fine, never felt desperate looking at a big fall. Clipping never felt hard, with the exception of the first bolt -- might consider a stick clip for that one if doing the direct start and not traversing in from the left. May 8, 2017

Crappy bolt positions, especially the last one.... The cruxes come when you try and clip them! May 8, 2016

Thought that this was hard for 11a? Pumpy and thought provoking, good route though. Jun 9, 2008
Actual route name: Bachar up against the wall and Kauk him. The first ascent was completed shortly after a scuffle between the two.
