Located on the Tunnel Bluff, start up toward the obvious roof above a big ledge (Bionic Finger Crack is to the left). Straight forward climbing to the ledge with tons of protection (small to medium cams and nuts). The Crux is at the roof and requires a layback on some slick rock. Commiting move but easy to protect with a #2 Camalot and a long sling. After pulling the overhang gain the crack and enjoy the easy jamming to the top.
Fun little climb with lots of protection for beginning leaders.


The only obvious overhang on the Tunnel Bluff...


Small to medium cams and a set of nuts. Medium cams for anchor at top.
Great climb for beginners to feel not like beginners! I bring lots of new climbers here and they love being "upside down". Its very easy to talk a new climber through this route and let them enjoy the overhang! If you've never climbed here I would highly recommend this route! Apr 28, 2017

lowe balls makes for a good omni directional piece below the overhang. May 7, 2007
