BETA PHOTO: Awesome, sustained route with a variety of cruxes....

Description 

Da-Nile is a wonderfully sustained route with loads of variety. It works fine to belay below the 4th class vegetation scamble to get to the base of the route. Approach from right by scrambling up to narrow ledge system and traverse left to the small tree that serve as secure jugs, then up to the roof-capped slot.

Da-Nile starts in the flare, goes through a burly roof into the shallow left-facing corner to a cool mantle. From the ledge, the crack widens to hands then pinches down to tips before aggressively leaning to the right and opening up to off-fists before the anchor.

Location 

About 120 meters right of Akmun-Rah and Sphinx. The climb starts from a ledge 10 meters above the trail. It's fine to have belay below the ledge.

Protection 

Double set from .3 to #4. Only one #4 needed if you save one for the top. Nuts are useful.
