Epic lead with the exposure. Well worth the 3 star. Definatly use heel hooks on the roof to reduce getting whipped off or pumped out befor you go for the hanging photo opp. I didn’t bother clipping the old piton either. Seemed to create more rope drag as I had a cam in befor it so I unclipped it. Just start banging cams in the rail and keep moving. Will definatly revisit this one

Gear retrieval ... Once up redpointing off someone's gear, then turned around and reversed it all the way to the ground taking the gear out. Turns out that doing Kachoong backwards is actually a whole lot of fun. The lip move is no long an issue, but the last move (i.e. the first move) is ! I'm pretty sure thecrag doesn't have a category for up-down-gear-retrieval.

It had to be done. A brilliant conclusion to the ten pitches of awesomeness rest day at Araps and delightful to tick off a climb that was one of the first i ever saw pictures of. Probably a few grades easier that the suggested 21 to tell the truth but that does not detract from the allure of this piece of rock. Every somewhat competent trad climber should definitely suck it up and jump on this!

Full value. Climbed the starting wall fine, and powered across the roof. Don't hang around before the roof contemplating, you will only get pumped. Pulled the lip...and slipped off because the headwall was still wet from the rain. Took a nasty 5m fall. Will probably protect the lip next time.

Lessons from this attempt:

  1. Warm up first

  2. Don't spaz your gear at the roof, 1 cam (purple or little blue C4) and the piton is sufficient.

  3. Don't attempt it after 3 pm at that time of year or the sun will be in your eyes the whole roof

Lost the head game. First ever trad bail off. Will go next time I reckon. Gear beta: I put a 0.3 and a 0.5 C4 in the horizontal slot above the rail you climb on, out past the piton, so that when I came off, I didn't hit the wall. Which I would have if I'd put gear in the rail you climb on as every seems to do.
