Natural gear required
  Traverse along the ramp then straight up. Crux is near the top. Good gear placements but requires a bit of a clean. Good anchors at the top. Scramble up and belay on the obvious ledge or you'll run out of rope!

Natural gear required
 
  1. Belay on the higher ledge and head up and right. Straight up through the scrappy section then into a prominant crack that takes good gear.
  2. Start near middle of wall and head slightly left. Poor pro.

  Right trending weakness to the right of the 2nd pitch of 'Sonam'. Well featured and good placements for large wires/small hexes and mid range SLCDs.
