DescriptionPitch 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.
Location300m left of Kusawa Stairs. Route begins on a little slab left of a big dihedral, which divides the face.
Rap the route to descend.
