Description 

Kwijiwabo is one of three climbs that starts off a ledge above left side of the base of Space Wall. Of the three climbs Kwijiwabo is the one that heads slightly left.

The climbing is steep and technical for the first 30 feet, then moves over a small bulge and onto thin face climbing more typical of granite.

The climb is sustained throughout and loads of fun.


Protection 

7 bolts to 2 bolt anchor. Shares the first bolt with the two climbs to the right.

Can can hike around the left to the top of space wall to setup a top rope.

This is a great 11a climb combining all aspects of technique - lie backs, finger crack, friction face climbing. The first bolt is quite a ways up, so it may be safer to start from the incline up higher than from the ground. It is topropable but it is best to have someone lower you from above to the anchors, set the rope, then get belayed back up. Rappelling off it is tough without actually hopping down into it.

A finger-sized piece between bolts one and two may make you feel warm and cuddly. There are some moves to the second bolt and a huge ankle-tester of a ledge below.

Otherwise, it's a fun, slightly awkward route with a fair bit of crimping involved. Exfoliated my finger tips, anyway.
