Crux bulge on FA Fa-Lufa (5.11)


Climb up off the ledge to the 2 white tufas left of Tufa Consequences. Reach a good jug above the tufas with the aid of an undercling/pinch and continue up into blocky & bulging dark brown rock. Climb through the bulge on small crimps and continue up on moderate rock to the chains.
Some cool, textured, skin scrubbing rock on this one!


Climbs the prominent white tufas to the left of Tufa Consequences. All bolt hangers are Fixe silver/unpainted


6 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor with chains

Awesome fun climbing. The tufa pinches at the bottom were MADE for climbing and set up for perfect hand movement. The crimpy crux bulge is quite entertaining especially with the pump factor.
As with Tufa Consequences this route is short but with unique climbing. Definitely a 4 star must do route in the bat cave area.
