Description

Climb the right side (black) tufas to some good holds at the top. Continue thru the steep stuff on fun jugs to a stance where the angle kicks back. A few interesting moves past the last few bolts takes you to the chains on the right wall.
This is a real cool warm-up route. Steep, juggy and unique

Location

On the right side of the yellow section of the cliff, the route climbs up the black colored tufas. All but the 2nd bolt hanger is yellow (2nd hanger is gray)

Protection

6 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor with chains. There is a low 1st bolt at the ledge even though the move to clip the 2nd bolt is easy.

Though a bit short, this route has such unique climbing that it's a must do and therefore gets 4 stars for the bat cave area routes Mar 18, 2013
