Twin slabs. The left one is shorter and light colored. The right one is taller and dark colored.
The rock quality is amazing on some routes like Ogawayama Story and not as good in other places.
The granite on popular routes tends to be polished much like Joshua Tree. Smearing is rough at times.

Getting There 

The approach is 20 minutes from the lodge. Cross the river from the lodge and follow the paths which are not marked.
Ogawayama is not the easiest place to get around. Here are GPS coordinates.

Find the fixed line. Moralist is the route on the right. Climb the arte and face on the right on huge holds. Now take the line right up the top slab to a chain next to a small tree. Watch out for the spaced bolts higher up....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
