|Armora Gedel (Addis Ababa)
Climb starts directly under the first bolt. Climb up to a ledge and reach for positive slopers. Clip the first bolt from the ledge if you can. Pull on the left hand sloper to the jugs above. The second bolt is far from the first bolt with possible TCU (cam 0.5-1) placement in between the two bolts. The middle of the route is the most fun and the reason you want to try this climb. The vertical basalt is a wavy lava flow with shallow and deep pockets as well as horizontal and vertical ledges. Green and yellow lichen paints much of the wall making it a psychedelic pump!
Look for a series of finger cracks with lots of grassy plants growing out of them on a slab to the far left of Armora Gedel. Poroto Gringo starts a bit to the left of these cracks. You can't miss the first bolt on a lip above a small alcove.
5 bolts and 1 possible TCU placement.
2 bolt anchor with chains
