Description 

The "Direct Section" is a small bit of wall that sticks out from the overgrowth around it. Approximately 50 feet tall, this rib of rock has 4 main routes and 2 variations squeezed in to a very narrow section for such a route count. The spot is popular, and if you are on it you'd hope to be the only party, as a single anchor up top is shared by all of the routes, and group TR's are often the order of the day in Singapore.

Getting There 

Walk past "Boring and Meaningless", the "Third Kid," and then arrive at the "Direct Section" and "Razor's Edge" as the wall/side of the depression tilts to the SouthEast, just before a corner.

This route goes pretty much the middle of the Direct formation. Find the line of bolts to the left of the obvious right-facing dihedral and follow up to the common anchor at the top of the formation. Don't be confused by the seemingly random bolts to the left. The first ascent was with trad gear, and it is a good choice for a beginner trad climb as it is pretty solid with adequate options for protection. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
