Description

Steep and long routes on medium to good quality rock. Some in the sun, others in the shade most of the day.

Access issues inherited from Horai

Ensure that you park in section "C" as "A" is reserved for hikers. If the parking is full drive down and park next to the bridge at the bigger parking on the other side of the river.

Approach

Same as Gourd Rock, just continue up the obvious path.

Ethic inherited from Japan

There`s not a lot of information about climbing in Japan in English. Much of the information is only available in Japanese - or of course here on theCrag!

The Japan Free Climbing Association (http://freeclimb.jp/seibi/seibi.htm) is a good point of contact and there is a set of 5 guidebooks (all in Japanese) and an alpine guide book in English available covering all of Japan and its thousands of sport and trad routes and boulders.
