It is quite a remote location that can only be accessed by hiking and with mules and is much more of an expedition type trip where much preparation and planning is needed. The potential for development and new routes there is unbelievable and it draws experienced climbers looking for a new and wild experiences as access to some of the areas up in the gorge can be interesting and require navigating slot canyons sometimes filled with rushing water, and using berber ladders made of rocks and sticks clinging to the rock faces.
