This route was born out of frustration when I couldn't get up the left side of this magnificent pillar. I then tried the right side and Wei-Nei Gu-Dei was born! There is another 2 bolt anchor in the middle of the pillar that could be another route if somebody were interested in trying to get up the left side of the pillar.

Wei-Nei Gude starts in the middle of the pillar. There are some easy moves of balance through the first two bolts. The 3rd and 4th bolt go over a part of the wall that is a bit chossy but with enough solid holds to get you to the next head wall.

Place a .75 cam above the fourth bolt in a horizontal crack.Then move up and slightly right towards the nose above. Try the nose direct or move around to the right into the large dihedral and step out on the nose. The final 2-3 moves are tiring and perhaps the most difficult, but well protected.

Weinei GuDei is a common expression in Amharic that means something like 'jumpin' jesus on a pogostick'


The route is located to the left of Enkefet and to the right of the Poroto Gringo wall.


9 bolts, 1 gear placement (.75 - 1 tcu)

2 bolt anchor with quicklinks
