Description

Get your adventure hat on because you've got some work to do. Recommended to bring flipflops for pool hopping and be prepared to take off your pants for the waterfall climbing up and through the long dark leaning narrows to the mushroom feature at the base of the route. Start up the overhanging squeeze chimney and then follow the line of bolts at the back of the ledge for 12 pitches of pendulum jumping, pocket pulling and spectacular reddish orange very vertical faces straight for the gigantic butt cheeks in the sky. There is an optional escape on a line of fixed ropes at the tower ledge at the end of the eighth pitch. Otherwise continue up some of the finest of deep orange taghia rock past the butt cheeks to a ledge. Walk this ledge to the left and then do 2 hanging raps to the base of Princesa Mismir. The walk back to Taghia has a section of heads up climbing, and an optional Berber staircase, plan for 1.5 hours.

Location

This is currently the last route at the end of the Akka N'Trafawt, past Canyon Apache by about 20 minutes, at the end of a long dark canyon that is leaning to the right.

Protection

Standard Taghia rack - single+ set of cams, alping draws, optional hooks and ladder for aid moves and extra cord for rock bridges. All anchors are bomber. Be aware that rockfall is common in the first 3 pitches, especially after a rain.
