Pete's FA of No Thorns

Description 

The crux is the blank section you'll face while trying to climb up to the two tufas--once your back/butt is resting on the left tufa you're in the clear for the route. Up to that point it's moderately steep climbing with great holds.

David Livingstone apparently visited a forest in Zambia and raved about how there were no thorns in the Zambian forest. The route ends in the middle of a thorn bush.

Location 

Just to the right of the first main corner when you arrive from the west. The route climbs a moderately steep section on the face to the right of some tufas (tufas are on) and ends in the middle of a thorn bush. When setting up a top rope, cross a gully at the top of the cliff into thorn bushes. There should be a cleared section of thorn bush leading to the top of the route, and the trunks of the bushes themselves can be slung for the anchor.

Protection 

For now, TR anchor only, one can only dream of getting a bolt crew here...
