Climber at the anchors 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 5.11 climbing while the last section before the last bolt features 5.11+/5.12a moves over five meters of sloping, small side pulls and crimpers on hard basalt. Fun climbing with two ledges for natural rests to attack the crux!
Very difficult onsight.
Name is a throwback to the wonderful taxi-bus system in Addis.
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.
Nearing the crux at the top!
