Climb the left facing dihedral up to a no hands rest (maybe 5.8?) then traverse out left to the two tufa features, after making it to the second tufa climb straight up and either drop (FUN) or top out.

Traversing out and making it to the first tufa is the crux and one of the most fun moves on the wall, this route is awesome, do it!


Left of the elephant tufa route and the warm up but right of the horizontal crack lower on the wall, the dihedral and duel tufas should speak for themselves.


The water is ample deep, go for a swim!
