Description 

One of the few, but fun trad routs in the area. Start with a few hand jams in clean, but short cracks, as you climb striate up. These cracks take gear nicely. Once above the clean cracks use the various thin cracks systems to climb up and right as you make your way to the anchor that is shared with Jihn Panka. A top rope can be setup by beating through the bush on the back side or climbing Jihn Panka to the right. However, it is recommended to place a directional at the start of the traverse if one intends to top rope this rout.

Location 

Far left side of Kochel Rock, left of Jihn Panka. Start and belay from where the busses have been pushed aside. The anchor is shared with Jihn Panka. Repel down or face a bushey walk off the back side, once toped out.

Protection 

Single set of cams size .3 to 3"
