Bill on Out of Africa.

Description 

I felt like this was the best route that we did during our visit. This route ranks as one of my favorite sport routes anywhere. After stick clipping the first bolt you're confronted by a difficult move directly off the ground (though it can be made a little easier by traversing in from the right) that taller people will have an easier time with. After you're established onto the climb, ascend gray elephant-trunk-like stalactites (can even throw in a gratuitous hand jam if you wish) to a blank looking wall. Use a mono and a crimp through the blank section and keep it together all the way to the chains.

Look for a cool sharks mouth formation on the climb!

Location 

You can't miss this formation. Look for the gray elephant trunks.

Protection 

10 TITANIUM bolts to a 2 bolt anchor.
