Ben Wilbur is stoked on the double knee bar

Description 

Climb up a huge featured tufa and try and find the double kneebar, you won't be tired but its pretty sweet. Climb up and left to the anchors. I thought It was more fun than Montezuma Tufa.

Location 

Far left up the hill right before the mine. This is the route directly to the right of Montezuma Tufa.

Protection 

6 bolts +2 for anchor

I can't think of what makes this a 10c. Didn't feel harder than a 5.9 or 10a, from my recollection.

Agree with the above post. 10a is generous in my opinion. Don't miss it though - it's a super fun route and you can use the anchor to drop draws on the 11 to the left.
