Description [Edit]

The start of this climb has two options.

If you're climbing on a 70 meter rope you start from the bottom of the mini rock tower leaning against the wall. Climber goes up left hand side and will see a first bolt on the main wall.

If you're climbing on a 60 meter rope, the belayer and climber will have to get up on the mini-tower ledge, and it's easiest to do so by climbing the right hand side of the mini-tower. There is a big space for the belayer, and the first bolt from this side will be visible, about 1.5 meters up.

Anbessa: Reachin the head wall, climb the first section on a series of cracks and jugs, go through a crimpy section to another jug and then up a crooked column that you can wrap your arms and legs around. Shimmy up to the pointy Owl's Ledge (9th bolt). Take a breather and attack the corner arete-crux with the power of the ANBESSA or Lion in Amharic.

Location [Edit]

You'll find Ambessa quickly, because it's the first sport climb as you walk from the Main Wall towards Cracked Wall. You'll probably see the bolts which go up a face and then reach a ledge and go up a corner arete to the anchors. There is a 7 meter mini rock tower at the base that you have to climb before reaching the headwall.

Protection [Edit]
