Starts to the right of the Big Tufa.  Lots of little holds in the dark black rock dihedral. Tops out wherever you run out of holds.

Rating is approximate!  We never really decided what this climb is rated but it's not extremely challenging.


Just to the right of Big Tufa, a ways to the left of Warm Up


Deep water solo
