Description

ADVENTURES IN NAGALAND 5.10c * (120') M (11b)
Takes a diagonal line across the middle of the face, beginning on the ledge above the lower face and ending at the top of "Sidewinder". From the boulder at the top "Fight or Flight" step up and climb right on good in-cut holds to traverse right to the large ledge. From the right end of the ledge climb up and right through delicate moves (technical crux) to the wild high-step roof mantle (psychological crux). Continue right to join "Sidewinder" for the top 2 bolts (or make one last gear protected move, above a #1 Camalot, just left of the "Sidewinder" bolt and join that route for the final bolt protected mantle).

This is a fun and safe but challenging route requiring a lot of draws and small to medium cams to protect the the second climber, and reduce rope drag for the leader. It is possible and perhaps preferable to do as 2 pitches with a gear belay )single #3 Camalot) on the large ledge.
