BETA PHOTO: At the anchors after a long dogged battle

Description 

This is the compelling pocket line featuring the map of Africa, just as you reach the wall. Listed as a TR in the RRG3 guide, but fully bolted and ready to go.

3rd clip (near Libya) is hard -- good feet and an alert belayer here. 5th clip is scary but very safe. I went quite a ways R at that point, then traversed back in for the clip.

As of 11/10/11, the route was pretty scruffy above the 4th bolt. If it were cleaned up a bit, I'd give it 3 stars instead of 2.


Protection 

Bolts, stick clip.
