Located in the upper "Lois Valley", just past Khartoum lake. With Mt. Diadem at the head of valley.
"Khartoum" holds several(3) multipitch climbs from 7 to 10 pitches in length. As well as several shorter routes of 1 to 3 pitches.
Rock is good, and very clean, by coastal B.C. standards.
Routes are "moderate" (5.7 to 5.10), and involve extensive crack systems, interspersed with technical face climbing.
The wall faces East, and has afternoon shade in summer months.

Very worthwhile climbing in the Khartoum! Access is a bit of an issue (2 hour + hike from the deactivation at mile 18; there is no signage indicating a climber's camp but rest assured it and the wall are there), but certainly should not put off anyone looking for a remote incredibly scenic multi pitch on superb granite.
