Description

Pitch 1: The first pitch is steep, with a mildly overhanging start, very interesting moves. 10 bolts. Multiple cruxes. Sustained 5.11d.

Pitch 2: Climb a 5.10a slab typical of this region, with about 10 bolts to the belay station. Traverse to the anchor station of Route 2 to rap off to the slab and walk down to the base.

A 60m rope is just sufficient for Sankranti and Route 2; the others may need a 70m rope.

Location

As you scramble up the slab to get to the base of the head wall, you will clearly see the bolts on Routes 2,3 & 4 (all single pitches).

Sankranti is to the left of Route 2. By peering left of Route 2 (put yourself on belay on Route 2's first bolt), you will find the bolts of Pitch 2 of Sankranti. You could rappel from there to the base and climb Pitch 1.

Alternately, don't scramble up the slab leading Routes 2-4, instead walk around the slab from the left and you will be at the base of Pitch 1.

Protection

A well bolted sport climb, with 2-bolt anchors and maillons at the top of each pitch.
