Starts off with some small but positive crimps and the rest of the route is on slopers. I thought it was an easier onsight than the 10c to the right.


the long black streak to the left of kigijiushi.


7 draws and something for the chains


This route is a definite step up from Kigijushi, as everything is less positive and the climbing is certainly less straightforward. The crux at the first bulge has marginal holds on tricky feet. The second crux is probably easier, but not with the pump. Most of the holds are positive, but small and directional. Look around for the best way. Sep 6, 2007

Soft for the grade, though I agree that this is a fairly linear progression from Kigijuishi. A good option of Kigijuishi is occupied, which it often is. Jan 29, 2011

with the hot weather, i found this route to be substantially harder than its neighbor, and quite a sandbag for .11a. That said, i found the climbing to be very awkward, cryptic, and frankly, not much fun. Jul 30, 2013
