Trip Report
Solo roped ascent of Munginella
Saturday January 19, 2013 3:40pm
I climbed Munginella roped solo back in 1997. I had no problem finding the route and I thought the routefinding was pretty straightforward. That huge loose flake was there on the 3rd pitch and I was extremely careful around it especially hauling my pack. I was there in late September and had the entire area to myself. The weather was great and I was surprised the climb was so clean with a name like it has. I found the protection quite good as well. Managed to climb the route, haul my pack and walk off without dislodging any rocks, but I am very familiar with climbing in areas with lots of loose rock. Overall it was a pretty nice solo climb in my book. One of my more noteable multipitch solos at the time.
