Tufa King Cool Roof

Utah > Central Utah > Joe's Valley > New Joe's > Wash Boulders

Description

An amazing roof boulder with incredible features, a perfect sandy landing, and a tall but easy topout. Located in a shaded grotto that stays very cool. The topout has been cleaned and it is bomber rock the whole way with large holds. That said, if you are sketched it’s very easy to hang a rope on this boulder and clean/rehearse the slab. There’s a couple 5.8ish moves you wouldn’t want to fall on before it backs down to 5.3 glory jugs. There is a perfect giant tree for the TR. This may also be useful if no one has chalked the problem recently, as small critical holds on the lip crux are hard to see from below. 

Getting There

Keep walking in the wash past the junction for Rick and Morty, passing the Clean Sweep boulder and an unnamed house-sized boulder overhanging the wash (potential sick problems here). Negotiate a blockage in the wash via a short scramble on the left (cairns). After about 5 minutes you will arrive at a grotto in the wash with several large boulders. Tufa King is on the left.
