So following up on this fantastic granite range (The Taka Mountains) above Kassala Sudan.

The American Alpine Journal on page 250, issue 2014, just now out, has a climb report by Jonathan Thesenga. He and his wife Brittany Griffith did several routes on these domes last December. Apparently it was 100 deg F midday, they report. And the vultures and baboons are still there.
