BETA PHOTO: The line taken by Aliens. It is 5.12- to the first...

Description 

Pumpy tuffa climbing. This route traverses a bit but is still of very good quality.

There is a second pitch that is easier and can be linked with the first if you don't clip the anchor (for rope drag reasons) making it an 80 foot pitch or so. The second pitch is however sharp and not as good.

A difficult start gives way to a good rest off of the huge tuffa/fin. Then tricky climbing leads up and left across the face to the anchors.

Location 

Head just right of center on the wall and locate the two tuffas that form a gigantic V on the wall starting about 20 feet up. Climb up to those tuffas but then traverse left and up to an anchor on a ledge with a tree just to the left.

Protection 

Bolts and a bolted anchor.
