Description

Africa Crack and its neighbor "Ptooey" are two good options if the popular routes at Old Sandstone are occupied. Africa Crack climbs up the appealing looking thin hands crack to the Africa shaped feature and up the overhanging hand crack. Start in the thin hands crack, work your way up onto a slab, place gear, and unlock a tricky hand jam sequence to surmount the overhang to a jug. Finish over some easy but loose blocky terrain.

Location

10 feet left of "Ptooey."

Protection

Medium sized cams all the way.

This would make a good introduction to 5.8. It has a short but good crux and takes great gear the whole way Nov 20, 2017
