head up the same approach as Toichimen- Mattannheki. After passing the second large boulder (first is Kumiko) veer straight up the Gully rather then following the path to the right. Continue to head straight up the gully till you reach the stunning wall of Jigoku Area.
Ethic inherited from Japan
There`s not a lot of information about in English on climbing in Japan. Much of the information is kept in personal blogs or is accessed through joining a climbing organization.
Many of the routes are well protected, while other less climbed "sport" routes have loose pitons as protection.
The Japan Free Climbing Association does a lot of good work (http://freeclimb.jp/seibi/seibi.htm) but with some clubs and communities, many techniques and ethics are still passed down from old generations with outdated gear and techniques.
