These balanced rocks are on the ridgeline about 200' from Sherpa's summit. As anyone who has summitted one or the other will tell you, the balanced rocks are definitely higher than the summit. I would contend that they rate their own summit register.

Our route was 5.6 A1 using a shoulder stand from the top of a cairn. Harder routes ~5.10+ exist but are sketchy to protect, I backe doff of it.
