Africa (V2). Goes up the east coast of the detache...


Goes up the east coast of the detached flake that resembles the continent (or is it a country?... heck, I can't see it from my house, so who cares?). Sit start beta goes something like:
South Africa --> Kenya --> Uganda --> Somalia --> Libya --> then up to Europe and top out due north.
Harder for short people.


Western end of the south face of the big boulder in the lower mound. The problem is adjacent to a pulled-away section of rock with a sharp juggy hand traverse (VB). If you stand back, you can see why this problem is called "Africa."


Pad, spotter.

A layback with a verrrry high-step with the left foot! I'll claim the FA on this one, circa 1979.
