Pitch 1: 5.7, 40m: Climb loose and grassy slab, left of a massive and yellow roof. Station at a flake just below a vertical dihedral
Pitch 2: 5.10b, A1, 40m: Climb a steep corner (watch out for loose flakes). This is the crux. Next comes a ledge: traverse left and take the next corner (solid rock, crimpers, and good climbing) to a good grassy ledge.
Pitch 3: 5.9, A1, 50m: Nice pitch on good rock, following a corner. Crux at the end, where you traverse left. Anchor on a mossy pad.
Pitch 4: 5.10b, 45m: Follow the obvious dihedral above, but keep left of the first few meters. Anchor after a little corner on a mossy pad to the left.
Pitch 5: 5.10b, 45m: Follow another obvious dihedral to the right. Reach the main shoulder after a short layback section with poor protection. Anchor 8m to the left of the ridge.


300m left of Kusawa Stairs. Route begins on a little slab left of a big dihedral, which divides the face.
Rap the route to descend.


Stations equipped with one bolt at anchors (back up with gear!)
Nuts, cams from 0.3" to 4", doubles if you got them, slings.
