The locals have done a nice job of terracing the steep slopes at the base of this crag.

Unfortunately the terracing at the belay stances has been almost completely wiped out. The lower tier is gone, the log is 15 feet down slope and the dirt blown out. The upper tier the log has pulled out at the anchor point that was against the crag. Behind that the dirt is already beginning to crumble and I suspect will be largely washed on when "monsoon" season hits.
The climbing is fun, but the belay stance is hairy and in need of repair as it steep loose dirt now. If the terraces get repaired, please post an update, otherwise belay with caution as you may slip arresting a leader fall. Thanks!
