Jason on the big tufa.

Description 

Spectacular Tufas all the way to the top. Well, except for that last hard slabby move at the last bolt before the anchors! This is a long and entertaining tufa route with mostly 6c+ climbing until the thin crux going to the anchors. The lower tufa may be wet but no worries, you'll be climbing dry rock well to the right of the wetness. A large sit-down hole just below the last bolt allows you plenty of time to procrastinate making the last moves while thinking about blowing the send with the anchors so close in sight! Many ugly, rusted bolts/hangers mar this otherwise fun line.

Location 

Up along obvious impressive, long black tufa in Olympic Wall Center.

Protection 

Bolts to lowering anchor
