This is one of the best climbs on Mek's Mountain, the first 2/3 of the route is a 5.9 and can be lead of TR up to two bolts for use as an anchor. The last 1/3 up a slab with an arete is the 5.10c part with the crux being the second last move. It starts down on the jungle floor and you climb up a crack with an 90 degree wall to the side. Climbing up to a thin crack to a boulder. Once on the boulder and now above the tree line is the two bolts for an anchor for a shorter 5.9 route. The top slab has great exposure and you move up to an arete, followed by a mantle to sit on the top of the slap and access the hanging anchor.
The route is located under Fraggle rock (or Sairee rock) and is a 10 min walk from the car park area along a concrete path thought the jungle and then down under the rock and is the first set of bolts you come to.
