Right of Itty Bitty, starts on big flakes with a couple of comforting bolts. At the sloping big ledge you'll need to protect the next move up and overhanging through the crack/horn system. You'll be doing something similar again, hanging out higher up, before you can get to the finishing horn and the anchors. Be good with solid pro, 'cause you'll be overhanging.

Good route for the beginning leader; starts with bolts, needs trad pro off good stance up higher. I always set good trad gear in the crack up high; good thing, since I blew the move and fell onto it on my third time on the route.
Did both "Pitches" in one go. The second (about 25-30 feet) above the anchors is slick because of all the lichen. To get off from the top of the second pitch crawl under an over hang and you'll come to the top of Africa and the access gully.
The climb has a few committing moves. Also a bit reachy.
