Tunnel Bluff - West Face. This climb is a steep slot close to directly above the west tunnel entrance. If already at the cliff it can be reached by a slightly sketchy traverse from Jigsaw base heading to the right. It's easier and not sketchy to reach the climb by hiking from the tunnel up and around on the right side. After 20-30 yards cut left on a slightly used trail to the base of the climb.
This climb is listed in the excellent guidebook by Pagel/Kollath : Superior Climbs (out of print).
There are 2 bright shiny bolts on top directly above this climb. Easily reached from the left or the right on top if toproping.
Gear to 4" with emphasis on small and medium. Gear is slightly sketchy in places but not bad enough for me to call it PG13. I just placed extra.
I went to the right of the recent rock scar down low - my climbing partner later commented I might have had better gear staying left of the rock scar.
