Fun climbing, if a bit lichen-covered in top. The pitch lacks a description in Shull's select guidebook and thus suffers from relative obscurity. Look for it on the topo, though.
P1- Climb Hindu Kush's first pitch. 5.8, 60'
P2- From the belay anchor, head straight up to a left-facing corner/roof. Continue up this main left-facing corner to the top of the cliff, and top out near KB Capers's topout. It's really more like Hindu Kush's direct finish. 5.10-, 110'


Route starts on the top of P1 of Hindu Kush.


Standard Shiprock rack (set of stoppers, double cams from 00 TCU-.75 camalot, 1 ea. #1/#2 camalot)
