Joshua on the crux of Tombstone Blues.


Climb up a short wall to gain the obvious crack on the right side of the headwall. Follow the fun crack/face climbing to the natural thread anchor on top.

Climbed this over the summer and had thoughts that it would be a nice easy 5.6 climb. Felt like 5.8 to me. I might have been missing something, but it felt harder then 5.6.
Fun route! Good moves!

Milan, where did you feel the crux was? I personally think it is the layback moving into the corner, and it feels right on at 5.6 to me.
