Description

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

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

There is some loose rock, since as of March very few parties have attempted this routes, this should stabilise soon.

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

Location

As you step up the slab (scrambling terrain) to get to the base of the head wall, you will clearly see the bolts of routes 2,3,4 single pitches.

Sankranti is left of 2. By peering left of 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

Well bolted sport climb, with 2-bolt anchors with maillons at each pitch.
