Looks like....

The Darrans Range (near Milford Sound South Island New Zealand). Renews my resolve to see Wyoming on my next US visit. I wanna see them big Tetons and that big steam loco at Cheyenne.

How did your find the route?

My goodness! I'm hoping to be there this sept to do Pingora and Wolfs Head. The route finding looks a bit of a challenge eh?

Re: How did your find the route?

It's an excellent climb! The route finding isn't too difficult, just stay more to your left than you might think. If you end up in a small alcove with a small roof overhead and a single bolt out to the right, don't go that way, you're too far right! We did that and struggled for 45 minutes trying to make 5.10 friction moves that didn't pan out. It's best to just traverse back to the left to get on route.
