These walls are located on the north side of the Entoto Mountain Chain near Addis Ababa and have exceptional views of the Sululta Valley and the Bahir Dar road below. This area is perhaps most famous for Hyena Point, which attracts some tourist during the day who are on the hunt for hyenas. This area was first developed by a pioneer of US sport climber back in the 90s. The Rock Climbing Ethiopia group has added some bolts to the anchors and climbs to complete what he set out to achieve. The rock is basalt like Armora Gedel, high quality and worth the visit (if not for the view and the chance to leave Addis Ababa).
Take the Entoto Road that goes north from Siddist Kilo past the US Embassy. Follow this road up to the mountain top, and take the dirt road north and then east. Follow the road for another 5km and park on the left among the eucalyptis trees. It's definitely not an easy crag to find, so you can contact me or one of the members of our group for better directions. firstname.lastname@example.org.

This is awesome, sustained climbing with several careful, technical moves over vertical rock. The route follows the bolts until the third or fourth bolt when climbers are forced over a small bulge. There is one more bolt and then a final bolt anchor. We are currently looking to install a 2nd bolt on the anchor.This is truly a classic Entoto climb that shouldn't be missed if you are in the are for more than one day....[more] Browse More Classics in International
