Steep jugs. Felt like the crux was clipping the anchor. Dec 4, 2010

Amazingly steep for the grade. Great holds all the way to the chains. The crux seemed to be clipping the anchor and getting into position below the chains to lower. Dec 13, 2010

Agreed with everyone else, crux is clipping the bolts. Steep climb with huge jugs. Make sure you don't slip before the 1st bolt or you will end up in water. Apr 28, 2011

Anyone know what the route is that starts inside the cave? Starts on the Kathmandu side then climbs roof out of cave. Looks insane! Jun 12, 2014

Great, fun solid hard 10a. Nicely overhanging route. Wouldn't call clipping the chains a crux, just a hair awkward.

I put a pair of brand new neutrinos two links up on the chains today(1-16-16) as the permanent Camp biners at the end of the chains are getting quite old and the gate on the right biner sticks perilously open. Please don't just booty them(probably happen anyway), but help yourself if you replace the gear! Jan 16, 2016

3rd bolt - 4th bolt saw a bunch of bee's. Didn't look possible to climb around them so i dipped out. Learned my lesson before getting stung in the head at the bat cave ;) Jun 7, 2017

Clipping the chains is much easier if you top out into the cave and clip them from above. Sep 20, 2018
