This is the short (70-80 foot)yellow/orange wall directly above the upper parking area for Bat Cave. It faces west and gets morning shade. The most unique features are several short 20 foot tall tufas that give the cliff it's namesake. This wall will make for good warm-ups during warmer temps or fun cool-downs during the winter afternoons. The climbs will be from 50 to 80 feet and range in difficultly from 5.9 to 5.13 or harder
