Description 

The crux are 2 chimneys that have old rotten rope in them. You can probably trust them but do so with caution. I would rate the cruxes 5.8 without the rope, and they are only 15-20 feet tall. Exposure is pretty minimal at the cruxes, but can be a little hairy on the rest of the trail.

Location 

See pictures for how to get to the trailhead. Otherwise hire a guide.

Protection 

Old, jungle rotted fixed ropes where you need them. For a real challenge, climb everything without the ropes.
