The rough line of the old Korean route, Climb as a eliminate, as the wall either side are deathly loose. Start using the original bolts then follow new staples on the flat wall being very careful for your belayers sake. If you avoid the very suspect flake at top it's more like 6a+. You have been warned, if I was you I wouldn't do it!

thought would be good warm up. Keeps you on edge was more woried about belayer lot of loosse rock.

The description is spot on! Having seen the new bolts, curiosity got the better of me so I thought I would use it as a quick warm up and quickly regretted it. Staying right is better but still plenty of loose bits up there. The Chemifix dabbed behind some of the flakes says it all. Looking back at the date, I have been such a fool...

Pulled quite abit of loose rock off, be careful if climbing this, the route itself isnt worth the risk.
