Looking at Techewet from Cracked Wheat


Nice solid 5.10 sport climb, similar to Tenish Tenish. Well protected and great climbing over a simple boulder problem, then through popcorn texture basalt, and finally to steeper-than-vertical wall with big holds.

Techewat is a common Ethiopian expression which is literally the command form of play.

Ethiopians will often say this if you look bored, as they want to make sure you are enjoying yourself. Techewat!!!


This line is between Jegna Aymotem and Oysters Nuts. It has a two-bolt anchor. Climbers could also easily continue up to the bottom of the 2nd pitch of the 5.9 trad line Oysters Nuts and go to the top of the wall.


8 bolts and anchors.
