Fun moves on big tufa holds.


This route is located at the far right side of Tufa City just prior to Marley Wall. Base of the climb is 20 feet up the wall, fixed rope access. Furthest route to the right. It is the last route on Tufa City.


6 bolts to biner. Best not to lower off the biners at this time as they will coil your rope. They anchor could use some quick links between the hangers and the biners as of 1-10-10.

The big hold marked with an X is solid. Kicked it, pounded on it and pulled on it. The stalagtite at the anchors seems solid but if you look at it from above it is very spooky. I would clip from the flake to the left.

This one is all about the pump factor. Amazing feature climbing.

Another tufa line that serves as the best warm-up at the wall! Great features and great movement!!
