A "backwards S" shaped line on the left end of the Tufa Wall. Stick clip the high first bolt then work up on small but positive holds to a long dyno/dead point move which attains a real good diagonal hold. Move left from here with big moves on great holds to a slopey crimp and then up with further difficulty to finally get a jug hold at the 4th bolt. Continue up the ramp with fun & interesting climbing to the overhangs above. At the roof do a final difficult exit using a bad gaston/finger lock to reach the chains.


Left side of the orange and white tufa wall. The route starts just right of where the lower wall turns from vertical to overhanging. Silver hangers


7 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor

if you make it past the v5ish boulder at the first two bolts then nothing up higher should slow you down.
