Description

5.8 G - Follow hand crack up and left into a book (crux), then follow this up to a rest near the raven's nest below the large roof. Head right following the arete to a series of flakes that go straight up, trending slightly left. At the top head right to a single bolt [there's also chains now].

Location

On the left wall, at an arete with a book 40 feet up, 20 feet up from the end of the arete in a corner with a birch tree growing at the top of it (can sling for first piece).

Rap from chains with 60m rope or walkoff is back into the woods 50 feet,wander left for the walkoff which will take you a while but no rappelling required.

Protection

Chains installed for anchor.

Top-roping non-beta: the Rocinha anchor can not be used to TR Soweto, this would invite huge dangerous pendulums. Sep 6, 2012
This is probably my favorite route at Shanty. Continuous challenge, outrageous holds, solid gear of all types, great view from the top.

Descent - I don't know if it's feasible to reach down to any of the anchors on the Rocina wall (never tried it). I've walked off the left end of the cliff (bring your approach shoes up with you) as well as walking around climbers' right to get to the Vernal Imperative anchor. Jun 30, 2016

Climber's right walkoff/rappel from the top of Little Gem Diner is the slightly faster descent option.

Any wasp/hornet nests on the climb? Jul 1, 2016

There are chains at the top now. You can rap with a 60m rope. 2 days ago
