Description [Suggest Change]

This is an awesome little crack near the Sagarmartha National Park entrance in Monjo on the Jorsalle side. It's a bolted hand and fist crack that is roughly 30 meters in length. The start is a little funky but then goes into splitter fists to another small odd section and then the top. Definitely dirty, but it's rock climbing in Nepal, what do you expect? There is an intermediate anchor halfway up, so if you want to do it in two pitches you can. Easily rapped in one rappel with a 60m rope. The crux is choosing which tea shack to go to after sending.

Location [Suggest Change]

Once you go through the SNP gate, you start to head down the steps and reach a mani stone. If you look at the rock wall to skier's left (it's sort of behind you at this point) you will see a dihedral and a small crack. There is some trash and rhododendron trees at the base. It is uphill from the other routes, not in the same location.

Protection [Suggest Change]

It's all bolted, but not the same type of bolts as the US uses. If you don't fall they're good. In all honesty I think the bolts are bomber and spaced well. 8-12 QD would be ideal.
