On to the tufa.


Syrtaki Lessons begins with some great stemming between the wall and a LARGE stalactite before depositing you at a rest beneath a bouldery pocket section just prior to accessing the main tufa system that you will ride all the way to the chains.

The first bit of the tufa is the crux, which ends at a rather blank ledge. If you can can make it to the ledge there is an opportunity to rest up before you have to gun it for the chains. The final 30-40ft. downshifts in difficulty, but is consistently sapping with lots of opportunities to mess it up.

This is a crag classic! Get on it!


Toward the left end of the crag further from the access trail, but prior to the 'crag warm-ups'. As is customary, the name is scrawled at the base of the route.


Bolts to lower-offs.
