Up the middle crack system

Description 

The climb tackles the middle crack system of the Cracked Wall, and starts down below on the easy bushy slab. After about 6 meters at the headwall, the climb follows a slightly overhanging line with great gear options left and right. After a final finger crack with some bird poop, you make easy moves to get onto a ledge and to the anchors.

Named after the famous Battle of Adwa from 1896 when the Ethiopians fended off an Italian attack and attempt for occupation. The Ethiopian army was led by none other than Menelik II, who went on to establish Addis Ababa.

Location 

Middle crack system of Cracked Wall

Protection 

Standard rack, two bolt belay on top.
