Start on the first pitch of Tilting Terrace but go straight upwards after the first bolt. Vertical and slightly overhanging climbing on prominent features. Optional bolt to anchor a belayer on a ledge at the base.


Walk up the slab from Jumangi to a small ledge to a bolt. Start is the same as Tilting Terrace but it goes straight up. Descent: rappel the route.


Bolts and bolted anchor at top with rappel chains.

Not sure if this is the right most route. I walked up the slab where you can see a bolt that starts a slab climb. Faced the left wall and started climbing. It was 6 or 7 draws up to reach the anchor.
