Description

This is the easiest multi pitch route at Chonkurchak. Its a nice introduction to multi pitch climbing since its fairly easy and has a gentle slope to it. Really just a nice climb! Be careful of the approach. Its full of slippery gravel bits and thorn bushes.

Pitch 1: This is the longest pitch of the three. You will need 9 draws. It ends at a nice big ledge with belay anchors in a good spot. This might also be the hardest of the three pitches (probably based mostly on length rather than difficulty).

Pitch 2: This is a really short pitch. Only 5 or 6 draws needed here. The route goes left a bit and goes up the arete for a few metres before heading back right to the belay station. This belay station isn't great, but it could be worse. It is nearly a hanging belay. Hope your harness is comfy!

Pitch 3: This pitch is longer than the 2nd but still shorter than the 1st. You will need 7 or 8 draws. Half way up the pitch there is a big metal post (old rappel station) sticking out of the rock. This is not the end! I wouldn't trust that rusty thing anyways... You'll pass through some thick vegetation near the metal post for a bit and then be back on rock soon enough. The belay station is at a great spot for standing, but you'll never be able to see your partner (or hear them either).

It looks like there might be a way to walk out the top, but I don't know for sure. Rappelling down is the fastest way to get back though anyways.

Enjoy!
