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.

Amazing! Difficult moves just to leave the ground start a grade 18 wall up to the roof, then a good rest before the roof traverse, great heel hook at the end before having to commit to pulling over the lip on reasonable holds and good foot placements. Rested on cam at roof lip.

GEAR: BD 0.4 1m above bolt (use long draw), micro cam in horiz break another 2m up, BD 0.75 to back up roof piton, tight finger size cam (BD 0.3?) at roof lip, then medium nuts and small cams for easy finish.

Last lead of my Gramps-Arapiles trip. Iconic, but less impressive than you might think. The crux is probably at the start getting established properly on the face (past a few moves). The roof is quite easy, though I still found it intimidating. The headwall is a doddle. Take a single rack of cams and wires (for belay at the bottom as well).

Had to second my own lead which allowed me to be relaxed and enjoy the climb.

So scary launching onto the roof. Found the foot work quite manageable this time around. Pulling the lip was desperate. and no photographer!

Mega classic. Had rest at roof when I cut loose. Will be back for sure now that I know I can get up there.

Kachoong! The sound your ankle makes if you fall off midroof with a heel toe behind the flake!

Led on preplaced gear, dogged under roof, but awesome mega classic climb that wasn't too hard. Keen to do it clean next time.
