Description 

A nice easy introduction to the immaculate granite of Ala Acha. Choose your own adventure, among infinite variations, as you climb from one granite ridge to the next. You can make it as hard or easy as you desire.

Location 

Starting from the lower camp, at the first waterfall, go back down the trail until you find a clearing in the vegetation for relatively unobstructed access to the grassy meadow and talus field above. Scramble up the talus field until you get to the first rock buttress.

Protection 

No bolts. Only natural protection. Single rack of cams and nuts should be sufficient.
