Description

It's a major treat to climb badass features like tufa fins, curtains and stalactites like this at the modest grade of 6b.
Stem and chimney your way up between two massive tufa curtains into the tufas and stalactites above. Enjoy the juggy climbing to just below the anchor when the route changes character forcing a few moves of pocket pulling to the anchor.

Location

Two routes right of Boubouki. The route name is painted on the wall at the base.

Protection

~9 bolts to an anchor with carabiners.

This is one of the popular warm-ups at Mars and it felt like a smack in the face. No hard moves, but slightly overhanging tufa pulling, which me and my group were not familiar with at this point in our trip. Consider warming up on the slabby routes way to the left or consider the advise given to us by a Czech climber at the crag..."sometimes is good to arrive to the crag having already trained".
