Climbs 21 – Rocktype Limestone – Altitude 4167m a.s.l – Faces all
There are a number of routes currently recorded, but scope for many more, and several may have been climbed, but not documented.
Most common ascents are via the South Cwm-South Col, but the North Cwm provides a superior alternative, but the West South West (Ouanoums) Ridge is best, but slightly more technical.
Nearby climbs such as Chockstone Gully on Afella here (http://www.ukclimbing.com/logbook/crag.php?id=18998).
