A direct finish to Kathmandu, at the third bolt head left then continue up the steep face using small pockets, hard pulling.


The old anchors are gone. Now 8-9 draws are needed, depending on if you clip the last one of Kathmandu, plus 3 fixed chain draws to the anchor.


It's really chossy up there. I had lots of dust falling in my eyes. Besides that, it's a super fun route - all jugs on very interesting terrain Oct 3, 2017

Great because of its length. The second half, above the choss, is fun and airy. The middle section is a danger zone. We saw someone else's follower kicking down huge rocks--the belayed had to hide in the cave. Be careful! Oct 4, 2015
Fun extension to an already fun kathmandu. Choss is pretty bad in the chimney. My friend stemmed out to the right side and a basketball sized chunk broke off and almost landed on the belayer and other climbers waiting to climb. Just wanted to throw some extra caution to the wind about this route to avoid any potential disasters. Jan 31, 2014

I agree with Michael. The picture currently displayed shows the anchors after 3 bolts, but those no longer exist. 8 draws are now needed before moving into 3-4 fixed chain draws and then anchors. It isn't that chossy/sharp, and the belayer is protected on that section because of the overhang. Pretty cool upper section, very steep. I'm saying more in the 11c range compared to the surrounding climbs. Sep 30, 2013

The anchors of this route have been extended and it has a few more than 6 bolts, it certainly seems like one of the longest/tallest routes I've climbed in Malibu now. The new extension seems a bit sharp and chossy in places, but all the holds I used on it seemed ok and the upper section is kind of cool to climb in. I think both the climber and the belay need to pay attention in case that upper section isn't all that stable, it would be a shame if something came off and hurt someone. Overall - one of my now more favorite routes out there due the length and the fun of that upper section. Jun 9, 2010
