Normal Route Overwiev

Normal Route Overwiev

The normal route follows the crack system in the corner, right on top of the rubble and debris. It is a very obvious crack, and in this picture part of it is in the shadow. The first rappel station is about 2/3 of the route, 30 meters.

Descent way?

Thanks so much for posting this helpful information. I am planning to go there next week.

Is the descent way the same as up or on the other side (and are the belay stations in place for rappelling: 2 points, slings, carabiner, ..., )?

Also, is the grade the same all along the climbing, or is a pitch easier than the other?

Re: Descent way?

Grade is easy, perhaps 5.6/5.7. There is just one hard step on the middle of the first pitch. Normally there are slings and old pitons in place in Rapel /belay stations, however you should bring slings and tape for reinforcing old rags.

Rapel is the same way.

Weather nos is not very good this time of the year.

Getting there is a pain in the assignment so get a porter if you can.
