This is awesome, sustained climbing with several careful, technical moves over vertical rock. The route follows the bolts until the third or fourth bolt when climbers are forced over a small bulge. There is one more bolt and then a final bolt anchor. We are currently looking to install a 2nd bolt on the anchor.This is truly a classic Entoto climb that shouldn't be missed if you are in the are for more than one day....[more]   Browse More Classics in International

I have climbed both Mt. Kenya, and Mt. Kilimanjaro (twice). I have great contacts and know the program for getting around, backwards and forwards. I'll post some photos and info when it's not 2 am.

Looking for more specific info regarding climbing in West Africa, specifically potential in Senegal. If there is some nearby, that would be helpful also. Please, any tips would be appreciated!
