(The Kangshung Crack) The vertical crack system just to the left of the big black chimney. Steep sport, especially the top finger-crack. Start on ledges up and left of Applecake Arete.</br>1) 6-, 30m. Scramble up grassy ledges then traverse 3m left to the base of a shallow vertical black groove that runs up to the right end of a roof. Pass the overhang on the right then continue up a groove to a belay on the right.</br>2) 6+, 30m. Strenuous finger jamming leads up a slightly overhanging section, then an easier finish up the final crack.
