Hungarob Combination

First ascent: Jörg Helfrich, Manuel Hofmann, Till Kramann, Alexander Stahl 09/2011
By: Manuel Hofmann
Area: Namibia, Group: Brandberg Massif, Peak: Orabeskopf, Height: 2606m, Country: Namibia

Established over 11 days in September 2011, Hungarob Combination offers extremely varied climbing: steep slabs, vertical face climbing, cracks, terrible friction slabs, off-widths, chimneys... everything!

ACCESS

Hungarob Combination is located on the left-hand side of Orabeswall, following straight up the black stripe up to the buttress. Past the buttress, a crack and dihedral will lead you to a vertical wall where a black stripe is found again (crux pitch). Following a corner system, you will reach the top towards the right. This is a well bolted mixed route which can be climbed with a single rack if comfortable with the grade or by adding doubles 0.5-4 if more conservative. Enjoy!
