Description

I read about this route in Gripped Magazine, and the description there is really precise for anyone that wants full map of the climb.

The write-up lists it as a 4 pitch climb, but I don't think anyone would need to rope up for the walk to the top after p3.  We did it in two pitches, linking p1 and p2 with a 70 m rope.  We had enough extra that I think a 60 would make it as well.

p1: 30 m - easy, slabby start with relatively good rock.

p2: 30 m - slightly more difficult than p1.  Fun, easy crack climbing.  Rock quality a bit worse than p1.

p3: 20m - listed as the crux pitch, but I didn't find it more difficult than p2 other than the rock quality.  I had to be careful when leading this pitch as there was a good deal of rotten rock.  This may change as it gets climbed more.

I think the real value of this route is the low investment.  You can easily knock out a fun multipitch on Tunnel with only an hour or two.  It's fun, low stress, well bolted and has great views at the top.

I will also note the FA gave this a rating of 5.7.  I think this is a softer grade than the other routes nearby.

Location

Far south side of Tunnel.  It is the left-most route on the wall.  If you take the first climber trail to the base, you will go left 10 feet to the start.

Protection

Bolts, safe and plentiful
