Description 

Three sets of roofs: a black, horizontal crack w/ small tree roof to start, a short, vertical section then turn another roof to flared slot and thin crack to roof with blocks and vertical crack to finish.

Schiavone and Middleton attempted to free the route and bailed, putting anchor past second set of roofs.

Location 

The start of this route is back in the deepest part of Khumbu's Cove.

Protection 

Standard aid rack.
