Overview

25 meters straight up this sharp edgy limestone. The anchors can be accessed by walking to the top.

Getting There

The area is known as "Aladdin's Lamp".

Route Description

Climb the grove line above a very small cave. There is an anchor at top for rappel or you can walk off to the right. The anchor does not have a chain. If you wish to set up a top rope some long runners may be useful to extend the anchor point and avoid excess rope drag on sharp rock.

Essential Gear

10-11 quickdraws. Long pants would be useful. This route is just less than vertical and lead fall on this extremely sharp limestone would be a virtual cheese grater.
