In the second section of Enkefet.


Face climbing up the center of a robust column of varied basalt textures. Ten bolts protect the leader and are spaced out while protecting the wall's hardest moves. The first two-thirds of climbing is sustained 5.10+/.11 climbing while the last section before the last bolt features hard 5.11+ moves over 5-6 meters of sloping, small side pulls and crimpers on hard basalt. Fun climbing with two ledges for natural rests to attack the Enkefet with Ethiopian power! A hard one to onsite, lots of places to go with those fingers... Enkefet means 'obstacle' in Amharic.


This climb goes up the middle of the face of a large column to the left of the big tree.

The first bolt is about 4 meters off the ground below a dicey roof.


10 quickdraws and two bolt anchors at the top with quicklinks.

Note: Climbers can reach the anchors of Enkefet from Tara Gara by climbing a small 3 meter section of 5.7 to set up a top rope.
