The line climbs an obvious ramp up to the right some 3 or 4 meters above the ground. There is a flake to place protection. Then climb through the crux (which has thin protection) to a perfect fist-crack above and then to a large ledge with lots of grass and dirt. Here the corner starts and protection is abundant for all sizes of material.

This is was a one star climb because there are still big, obtrusive grass clumps hanging on the cliff that won't seem to disappear. In addition, after two rainy seasons we realized that the climb is in a waterfall, making it very difficult to maintain. Thus the bomb.

If you want an adventure, go for it, the crack up top is awesome!


This classic route starts to the left of the big tree in the middle of the crag and goes up to an obvious corner.


Carry a full rack.

Anchor has 2 1/2 inch bolts and no links, so be prepared to add a sling or a biner.

It's best to check the anchor before lowering or climb up to the anchors of Enkefet (
