DescriptionBest accessed by rappelling from the top. You can use a 70m rope to rappel off the third pitch, and it is possible to get to the bottom with one more rappel. Recommend leaving water at this ledge.
First pitch is easy corner with tree growing in it (tropical mixed climbing). Finish at hanging belay next to tree.
Most of the second pitch is a perfect finger crack. Crux of route is the steep part of this crack around the 2nd bolt.
Third pitch is best belayed from the ledge to avoid rope drag. Very sheer face with good views of the valley. Good, consistent 5.10 climbing on sharp Krobo chicken heads to the top.
