Description

Pretty short route but it has great tufa pinching and laybacking from bottom to top. There is a much tufa climbing as any other tufa route. Starts on deep thin tufas pulls a bulge/roof on some cauliflower stalagtites then continues up another deep thin tufa. Bolts are to the left at the top to keep them in good rock.

It isn't long and the rock isn't as friendly as on some tufa routes but if you like tufa climbing you will be glad you did this one.

Location

The farthest left route on the Marley Wall. Hike to the Marley Wall then walk all the way left until you cannot fo any farther. Single belay bolt is down and right of the first bolt.

Please be careful on this route as the leftmost of the three tufas (just right of the first bolt) sounds very weak. Using this feature does not seem necessary.

While the route is short, the tufa feature is equal in length to those found on Tufa Yard Dash and Tufa-One. The movement is fun. Not a classic but definitely a real treat to climb. Dec 12, 2011
