Good introduction to slabby face climbing on Joyama andesite. This is slabby face climbing, with many small solution pockets, few of them positive, so reasonably delicate climbing with footwork being important. Follow the line of bolts directly up, the well protected crux is near the top. Note the route sequence is from the topo in the guide book

Descent Options:

Lower off the chains

Starts on LHS of Soutch wall as you get to the wall from the path. A good straightforward introduction to climbing on Joyama andesite
