African Herbman in some shade.

Description 

The climbing stays to the left of the arete and goes up good holds with some interesting moves down low, and finishes on jugs to the anchors. Interesting climbing.

Location 

This route is to the right and uphill of the Big Top cliff, which is a undercut and overhanging wall. On the left side of the wall which holds African Herbman, one can also find Srongman. Strongman goes up a colorfull streak on the left hand side of the wall, and Strongman is just to the right of a slightly larger than fist size crack in a dihedral.

Protection 

Six bolts to a two bolt anchor.

Great climb on moderate jugs, true to grade. A new favorite of mine!
