An excellent stemming challenge up gritty solid limestone. The crux comes early. This climb features a tufa, the only one I've ran into in the canyon. Very airy climb as you are stemming above the void for the majority of the route.


This climb is on the right side of the cave. It starts in the smooth looking grey/blue chimney. This climb veers right of the 12b face (the first two hangers for the 12b are gone for some reason?)


6 bolts and chains with biner anchor
