Description

Easier moves to get to the low roof. Clip bolt just over the lip from underneath the roof. Here is the crux pull a few hard moves, starting with tufa/pockets then slopey opened handed holds. Then pulling the hardest moves on the route to get established on one of the giant tufas. Clip two bolts on left side of tufa while using holds on the right side of the tufa. One more move just as the tufa disappears then easy terrain to the anchors.

Location

First route to the right of Way'Stead. Starts on upper tier. Access start via same way as Tufa King and TYD.

Protection

8 bolts to a 2 chain anchor. 3rd bolt has a fixed chain draw.

The answer is not always no... Would it make the route better and more well received by the general climbing population? Its a sport climb so it already has bolts, would placing a final bolt change the style of the route? Jan 21, 2015

Should there be one more bolt just before the anchors? Consensus would be appreciated! Jan 19, 2015
