Description

months ago, we spotted an anchor about 80 feet up on a vegetated ledge, approx. 20 feet left of puro filipino.
we wondered what the climbing below would yieldÂ… the verdict: pretty stiff climbing on surprisingly solid stone.
just when we thought we might have bagged a coveted FA, evidence of an earlier ascent materialized: knotted cordage! i kid you not. 2 ancient pieces were crammed in halfway and 3/4 the way up. one piece still remains, demarcating a route older than the bulk of climbers at the dong.
pretty amazing and certainly worth keeping for posterity in its "natural state"

newish anchors (probably installed to rap bolt :( the face in question)
lower or rap with care as a wasp nest is more or less directly under the anchors

Location

left angling system of cracks, left of puro filipino.

Protection

standard rack. don't forget the small stuff and cord!
316 steel (2011)

Be mindful on rappel, as a 60m rope just barely makes it to the ground. Sep 19, 2016
