Keeping climbs open depends on maintaining good relationships with locals and monks. MORE INFO >>>

Description 

Best rock on the wall once you get to the consistent headwall. Stick clip the first bolt or climb up a small tree to clip the bolt. The crux is right off of the ground with tough moves to reach a ledge. The crux is very height dependent and will vary greatly based on if the climber can reach the upper good holds or not. If you want to climb the route without this beginning boulder problem you can easily step up on a tree and skip the crux. Trend up and left on the slab, climb through a balancy bulge, and then enjoy the consistent 5.10 climbing up the headwall on beautiful sculpted stone. Make sure to take in the amazing view at the anchors.

Location 

Middle of Karaweik Wall. Number 8 on the Karaweik Wall right topo photo. Shares the start and first couple of bolts with 'Brexit' and 'Monet's Rising Sun.' The start is in front of a small cave overhang towards the middle of Karaweik Wall. After you clip the first two bolts head left for the third bolt and up the face.

Protection 

12 bolts and 2 ring anchors. Stick clip the first bolt or climb the tree to clip it. Stainless Steel Wave bolts installed on 06/19/16.

I got pretty pumped by the time I got to the top, and I wasn't expecting that! It eases up at the perfect time, for a nice jug haul to the finish. A bit of spice from a few tenuous slab moves at the bottom and a tenuous clip (for me, height dependent). Really enjoyed the little boulder problem at the bottom.
