Description

6 pitches

2nd and 3rd pitch are crux

Pitch 1: (5.9+/5c+)
Goes up straight on the west face and then finishes after a traverse to the south face. it can be devided into 2 parts 5b(5.8+) and 5c+(5.9+).
Sunday-1 from the base
Topo

Pitch 2: (5.10c/6b) Starts with an overhang with. descent holds. Shifting to scree slab above the overhang should be done with care.

Pitch 3: (5.11a/6c) Hardesh pitch. Again overhang, but less steeper. Negotiate the open crack containing tiny and loose holds. But, the protection is good.

pitch-3

Pitch 4: (5.8/5b) After finishing the crack, there's an easy traverse. There is a station at the end of the open crack. But, it can be skipped and next station can be reached with by climbing+traversing 20ft. more to the right. Make sure to use long runners while traversing to avoid rope drag.

Pitch 5: (5.10a/b /6a+)
A uniform crack leading to the station below a rock roof. Descent climb. One needs to switch between layback, stemming and chimney style climbing in this pitch. This may be the most enjoyable pitch on the climb.

*****VERY IMPORTANT*****

  • Rappelling down should be done with care. Refer the topo image. It is best to have a 70m rope.
  • There's a very good chance of rope getting stuck in the rock while rappelling.
  • Follow either of the following 2 sequences for abseiling with a 70m rope.

1. Top-Station 4 (after the layback pitch)-Station 3- Station 2- Ground (on the south side)

OR

2. Top- Station 3 (before layback pitch)- Station 2- Ground (on the south side)

------DON'T DO THIS-----

  • **If you rappel with 70m rope, you'll be able to reach Station 2 directly from the top. But you cannot pull the rope down. It will for sure get wedged in the rock and get stuck.
