2 pitches. Climbs a faint groove and continues direct to the finger crack on Gagool. Even with the upgrade this represents the top end of the grade. Steel fingers and a high pain threshold are required for big moves between sharp finger pockets to gain the relative security of the undercut on Gagool's traverse. If you get your finger out, it is protectable by skyhooks but this is easier said than done.
Finish up Gagool.

Easy moves with not so easy gear! Tied down skyhook and odd sideways nut thing helped! P1 only.

Really confused about this. The javu guide describes what I climbed as e4 6a also called gagool direct - that is up the starting groove through the pockets towards gagool crack. Was def 6a - especially with alien in the first good pocket and easily worth e3. Very good though.

ground up - fell off when cold/numb foot slipped off smear with waist level with skyhook - which held both me and my belayer! lowered, pulled ropes, warmed feet and shoes and sent, E3 5c i wouldn't argue with as on javu, a nice route
