Your Top Rope Hero cruxing out on greasy phantom e...


Japanese for "I'm tired of missionary; can we try doggie fashion?" Not recommended for sushi bars or "proper" geisha houses.

A fun romp up technical edges, bomber jugs, side pulls, and an airy crux traverse just before the anchor chains. Very soft for the 10d grade given in the Aris guide.


Find the second cave past the south goat pen, move right ten military paces to the left-facing corner on the left main wall, then count eight lines to the right and locate the swiss cheese pockets of "Drama," then take back one kadam to honor the Hebrew God, whose climb this is, and BAM! You're ready to start looking for Bubuki. (The climb, I mean, not the sex act.)

Or hell, just look for the damn name painted big in blue 'n' red at the base of the climb.


Thirteen-ish bolts to 2-bolt/2-'biner anchor. Anchor is starting to groove.

Easier climbing leads to long reaches with good holds on steep ground. Recover before the flake/corner presenting some trusting move (although completely protected). The exit is polished and rounded with a bolt at your waist, just commit as the anchor is near and clips with ease.

13 bolts.
