Description

Bolted in April of 2013 this route is an excellent outing. The first pitch (5.10b) starts from a ledge above the route "Taley (5.9 / 5b ) and continues up a prominent prow. The first pitch is vertical and pumpy (5.10b) but well protected. The second and third pitches (5.7) are lower angle with plenty of breathtaking views of the Himalayas and the exposure off climbers right. The second pitch belay is by far one of the most scenic I have been on. It's pure fun on great rock. This route will clean up nicely over the years and is already seeing significant trafic. Rap back down the way you ascended. Great summit! A set of draws and maybe a few longer one's should suffice.

Location

Just above the route "Taley" You can actually do Taley and add a pitch to this already stellar outing. Start on the left side of the ledge.

Protection

Bolts. This entire route (like many in the Shey) are bolted to cater to climbers traveling from all over who don't typically carry a large trad rack. This route is well protected on solid hardware.
