Description

This route is hailed as an excellent, moderate sport climb for people visiting Armora Gedel. And if you're not climbing trad (Oysters Nuts) then this should be your first run on the crag's unique basalt. The climbs starts on easy basalt with big holds and is better protected than other climbs on the wall.

The crux is above halfway on a few crimpers with lots of options for feet. There's always a big hold around the corner, and the rock is solid.

The name means "just a little" in Amharic, which is what you'll be saying when they ask you if you want to eat the Ethiopian raw meat dish known as kitfo...

This route is a much appreciated contribution from prolific route developer from Utah, James Garrett! Ato James has visited Ethiopia on several occasions and put up other climbs in Tigray.

TT is the most well protected route on the crag and is a sport route. The continuation above on SR is not a true trad climb by definition as it was also rap drilled. Due to a scarcity of bolt availability, however, you would be advised to place some gear here or there. I doubt if anything here was actually put up from the ground making it a true "trad climb". An evolving definition, i guess. Nice place to escape Addis and feel abit of the countryside!!:):) Dec 9, 2014
So clean, a couple bolts added to make it even MORE climber friendly! Belay bolt at landing. Nov 19, 2016
