Description 

Climb up a jamcrack in a small corner formed by a strange inset tower for 10 meters to reach a ledge (5.8) and then up a wide crack and a right-facing corner for 6 meters more to reach the bolted anchor for JuJu.


Location 

In the center of this crag lies "The Trash Compactor" a large, rectangular rockhouse with a slab at the back and a huge roof above. on the left side of that slab there is an O.W. crack that goes up and then left at the top. The ofwidth splits a section of the arete off, forming a strange inset 10 meters tall. The OW crack on the slab on it's right side is posted under the assumed name "Sunburn." The bolted arete is called JuJu, and the crack around the left side is "Zambezi Plunge."


Protection 

A standard rack of cams and a big piece for the top if desired. Belay and lower from the bolted anchors on JuJu.

Climbing the wide 2nd half of the route is pretty much an x rating without a number 6. I chickened out and went onto the bolts on the face.
