Stickclip the first bolt and make some tricky moves up the blocky pumpy start. Rest up on the convenient ledge and pull Tufa moves over the steep bulge. Here the 5th bolt is placed far right and difficult to spot. Continue up on cool easy tufa moves to the anchors.

This is the first half of the 13b Nambla, so if feeling strong continue up another 5 bolts for the 13b tick.


Starts above the pile of stacked boulders making up the "shade cave" In between the routes The Natural and Almighty, 2 hard 13's


6 Bolts to Anchors, Stickclip

The description is right on. Stick clip the first bolt. The 5th bolt is hidden in a scoop. Fun route but there are certainly better lines at Tufa City.

I found it pretty spicy if you don't stick clip the bolt.

Good line. Not the best of course. But different climbing. Fist bolt is a little off the deck so make sure to be super solid/stick clip first bolt. Large tufa at the top. ENJOY!
