Mid way up.


While Pitch 4 may be the crux with the highest grade of climbing, the elements and the exhaustion factor will get to you. With a two hour approach and another one hour top off plus another two hours back to base camp, you're in for a full day of climbing.
Pitch 1: II (5.3), III (5.5), II (5.3)
Pitch 2: II (5.3)
Pitch 3: IV (5.6), III (5.5)
Pitch 4: V (5.8), IV (5.6), V (5.8)
Pitch 5: scramble and traverse
Pitch 6: III (5.5) loose rock warning!!
Pitch 7: III (5.5)
Pitch 8: II (5.3)
Pitch 9: II (5.3)
Pitch 10: V- (5.7), IV (5.6)
Pitch 11: 100 meter top out over some scary peaks


Mainly trad placements that are one the small side. Bigger cams can be used for anchors. Bring a set of nuts as well. You'll have to build all the anchors.
