Keeping climbs open depends on maintaining good relationships with locals and monks. MORE INFO >>>


A strenuous overhanging start on broken and sharp (in places) tufas leads to a jug rail rest and an amazing crux pull off of a two finger pocket. Gain the ledge and then a few thinker moves to clip the anchor.


Fourth route from the left of the wall and number 4 on the Alamo Wall Left Topo photo. There are some hanging vines and a small tree dividing this route from the three climbs on the right of Alamo Wall.


6 bolts to 2 bolt anchor with rings. All bolts are stainless steel glue-in wave bolts. Bolts installed October 2016

Really fun holds! Bit of a bouldery start, followed by some cool pulls on some cool holds. Massive rest near the top and a good rest right after the bouldery start.
