Description

Tufa King Pumped indeed. This one packs a wallop. And then it gets hard.

Haul up fantastic, Jersey-sized tufa blobs out of the cave until you're foaming from the pump. Roll over the lip on big holds and you're done, right? Wrong. Crux time. Too bad all those late nights watching Seinfeld reruns; you should have been campusing on worn-down dimes and Ginsu steak knives.

You also should have been eating your Wheaties 'cause your tank at this point is dry as English humor, and you still have to pull through power underclings with awkward positioning to a slopey "crimp" that's more like a jar of Vaseline than a handhold.

Good luck with that. Hope ya don't get tufa king pumped. I mean...actually I hope you DO get it, but not really, I mean...what I'm sayin' is...

Location

On top of the gray/white limestone pedestal, right side of the Iannis cave, seemingly OUT of it—but once you look at the angle of those opening moves you realize, "Oh, not really."

Just left of "Attitude."

Protection

A dozen plus draws and months of training doing fingernail pull-ups. With manatees tied to your feet.
