Very worthwhile climbing in the Khartoum! Access is a bit of an issue (2 hour + hike from the deactivation at mile 18; there is no signage indicating a climber's camp but rest assured it and the wall are there), but certainly should not put off anyone looking for a remote incredibly scenic multi pitch on superb granite.
