Description

Climbs the first 3 bolts of Dead Sea then moves right on the ledge. A body length higher on the next ledge most will reach down and unclip the bolt to reduce rope drag or you can use longer draws on the 3rd and 4th bolts. Gets really interesting after the half way point when one begins climbing a light colored tufa. It stays in your face all the way to the anchors. A little grungy in the middle with a move to a flake that looks really scary but is quite solid.

Location

Same as Dead Sea which is about 100 feet right of the rock wall/cave area. Big boulders against the wall here.

Fun and varied climbing, with an excellent sequence up through the tufa, which will result in a tussle for most. Mar 18, 2011

Good route. Another wonderful addition to Tufa City. This route climbs very similar fashion to Dead Sea, however it is easier than it. Climbs a great single tufa up a somewhat blank face. Enjoy the tussle. Nov 8, 2011

Another great tufa route. Skips the hard low crux of Dead Sea to enjoyable moderate climbing with plenty of great rests. After the break the climbing is on, with a great section of single tufa, and engaging climbing up to the anchors. As mentioned there are some scary looking features, a flake near the midpoint and an undercling higher, but both felt bomber when pulled on. Feb 4, 2013

Feels just as hard as Dead Sea to me, I think the moves in the crux of TT are harder move for move but there are fewer of them as where dead sea just keeps going and keeps building the pump. Both great routes. Jan 15, 2018
