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.

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

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