Kusha is the rightward of the twin cracks. 5.9 climbing leads to a 2 bolt crux on thin face moves. Step up on the mid ledge, and pull through a steep roof to the left of the Parvati start. Continue up the huge, left-facing corner and up into the overhanging, wide corner above. A #4 Camalot protects the wide crack crux (5.9) near the top below the anchors.


This is right of Broken Arrow and ascends the right of the pair of twin cracks. Step out right to clip 2 bolts and unlock the cryptic crux! Climb the large left-facing dihedral above. The corner turns to an acute overhang with a fun wide crack in the back. Bring a #4 Camelot for the 5.9 wide crack at the top!


A full rack including a #4 Camalot.
