Description

This line is amazing and offers some of the best tufa climbing in Chonta.  With no huge stalactites offering no hands rests and kneebars this line requires more endurance than many of the other lines of this grade.  Start with a bouldery traverse left, culminating in a big move and a hard clip (currently there is a fixed draw).  Afterwards continue up the gently overhanging face, with a few good, but still taxing rests on huge jugs.  Pull another cryptic crux to a big flake, and cruise the enjoyable dihedral to the finish.

Probably low in the 12d grade.

There is an extension that continues up the face that looks quite hard.

Location

On the right side of the El Chonta Cave.  Starts just before the wall turns to vertical.  Look for the beautiful line running up the wide dihedral towards the anchors.

Protection

Bolts to anchors. Currently has a fixed sling at the 3rd? bolt. One of the bolts up high isn't looking too good, hanger was corroded and had water seeping out of the bolt hole, so use caution.
