More of a bolted boulder problem, than a route; however, SL is darned fun. Start on the small SWish facing face right and downhill from of a chimney/corner on a steep slope. Starts right of Rain and Little Khumbu.

Climb easy 5th class past one bolt to an awkward standup under a 3' roof. Tension out on a weird sidepull and huck for glory... don't even think about doing the move static, whether or not it's easier that way. Jumping is fun!


2 bolts to two open shuts for the anchor

After April 2017 trail work, approach and belay from uphill (coming from Rain and Little Khumbu). Start to the left of the first bolt. Climber will lower downhill of belay, at stone steps leading to trail.
