Description

This is a short nearly 90 degree 5.10 route. It starts on crimps with edging feet. up to a good rest about 30 feet up on a wide crack (with some vegetation in it). If you go up the crack it is a good 5.9. The best way to climb it is to rest on the crack and then move out right on which you must move carefully, and then pull an absolutely perfectly positioned heel hook to the lip at the top.

Location

This route is again on the second big set of cliffs up the hill. It is on the only north facing route on the norther most part of these cliffs. Walking to the top is easy.

Protection

Use your trad gear to set up a good top-rope. Base rope is suggest for the top system. I unfortunately did not see a way to lead this face, and due to the pristine quality of Mongolia I intensely discourage bolts.
