This is a killer route with steep moves from tufa to tufa to a final big move at the top before the anchor. Good use of drop knees, kneebars and heel hooks will make this route pretty reasonable. If you don't use these techniques then your in for a massive pump and probably some air time.


Nosferatus is located in the main cave two routes right of Tecolote. There are no fixed draws on this route.


Bolts to a two bolt anchor with chains.

This route is a must do if your at the Tecolote Cave. As the description says, "use of drop knees and knee bars make this route reasonable" is an understatement. This route was very tricky for the grade because it was hard to read and tricky to find out how to sneakily rest and do some of the downright awkward moves from stalagtite to stalagtite. Overall, I felt like it was solid 12+ climbing. Either way, its super fun and mad props to anyone who can onsight this thing without seeing anyone on it...... Mar 25, 2012
