Tera Atkilt's upper pillar


The first part follows two bolts over good holds. The crux goes over and on the right side of a small roof using great lie back holds until reaching gigantic lava-basalt holds, follow jugs and four more bolts over easy terrain and up an increasingly thinner and exposed pillar formation to anchors.

This climb trends left and topropers should probably clip some directional draws to avoid swings.

Atkilt Tera means Vegetable Market in Amharic, aptly named for the variety of plants, moss and weeds pulled out of all the pockets from the upper half of the climb.

Eat your atkilt, kids!


As you walk past the bushy slabs towards Giorgis 64 wall, this is the last slab. Starts on a grayish rock and goes through orange and then dark gray/black and finally whitish basalt. A rainbow of colors!


8 quickdraws and two bolt anchor.
