Description

Like its namesake city, this route exemplifies that even in the midst of dirt, poverty, and chaos (choss), one still finds many positive traits and wonderful people. With that said, this route, like the city of Addis Ababa, is not a place for everyone, (especially the choss averse!).

A fun beginner adventure route, but don't forget to wear your helmet. Maybe you'll look like a dork, but your Mom will forever be grateful.

Pitch #1: Climb up the buttress past several bolts to a steep overhanging bulge. Tread lightly though the brief impasse to loose, but easy terrain to a two-bolt belay under a roof. 5.7, 25m.

Pitch #2: Pass the first of two bulges protected by a few more bolts and follow the arĂȘte to another two-bolt belay. 5.7, 25m.

Rappel the route.

Location

From parked car to rope up spot, 5 minutes walk. The right skyline crest of rock of Bumblebee Wall that emerges from the gully separating Bumblebee Wall and Psychobabble Wall. Scramble up to the base of the ridge and start climbing at a glue in-bolt.

Rappel the route.

Protection

QDs (about 7 per pitch or more if you want to link the pitches).
A few small cam placements are possible.

Belays are bolted. Linking the two pitches may result in significant rope drag.
