Worlds most complex SID

I'm looking for the worlds most complex standard instrument departure. a link to a departure plate, doesn't matter how old to use as a teaching aid.

There used to be a departure out of London City airport that did an orbit around London, using 3 VORs and an NDB, with multiple crossing restrictions and requirements. It's long gone now and my paper coppy has long since turned into dust.

So, does anyone know of a particularly gnarly SID?

Macau has a few fairly messy ones.

Darke 1B at Kathmandu is fairly interesting for obvious reasons, although once the ascending orbit is sorted out overhead, it's fairly straightforward.

Not in the public domain...

The series of RNP procedures in China would likely qualify...much of the DEP from Linzhi is masked by the approach, but you get the idea...ZUNZ is at 9675' to consider with DEP performance.

Hey Folks
I'd appreciate any information regarding ZUNZ Minimum Safety Altitude.
I cannot find its approach charts, though.

Thanks a lot

The old Quito Airport (Mariscal Sucre/SEQM), either direction 18/36. Not difficult and certainly not as complex as the arrival was, but still kept ya onya toes!
