A bolder and harder variation on Africa Rib. Start to the right of the boulder Africa Rib starts at, below a slab.

2) 4a, 30m. Move right and gain the white slab on the left. Follow this up to a block on Africa Rib. Move right and then up to the overhangs on Asahel and climb over and up to the ledge and block belay.

Led first pitch. Partner then moved over to Africa Rib to climb second pitch. This was my 'easy climb, oesoteric gear placements' challenge. Had to find 3 placement options for each placement!

Did P2, climbing easy on small pocket but gear placements hard to find, guess that's why it's HS.
