Description

It’s called Africa because it’s right side resembles the west coast of the continent. That actual wall sits back a bit and has a big platform/deck at it’s base. Getting to the deck is easy to moderate and that’s where the fun starts! The main route at Africa is called Thin - it’s a semi-crack line in the middle that’s good for a beginner. To the left is a route which is a lay back up the “coastline” to the anchor. To the right of Thin is Very Thin, a crimpy balanced send to the same anchor point which is atop the big prowl to the left of Africa. To the right of Very Thin is Eye of the Whale that runs just left of the corner and then continues and engages the prominent roof and arête above to a top rope anchor on a level above that - the same anchor that services The Flake.

Getting There

Left area of Main Wall. Access top via the switchback trail to the right of the Main Wall. At the top of that bear left and follow a short trail. Pass Shark’s and The Flake rooftop to a gully next to that. Carefully go down the gully (10ft.) get to the anchors on top of the prowl. See Main Wall: About the Anchors: for more details.
