A great route. I would climb this and Tufa Yard Dash every time I went there. This climb seemed more sustained and as hard as TYD to me. I did it at the end of the day so I may have been a little tired.

Ouch! Okay maybe only three stars but really cool climb. Should have spent more time climbing up there, but hey, look at the money we saved. Nice route.

Despite being squeezed between "Tufa Yard Dash" and "John's Meat Market", I found two distinct lines up these bolts. Staying left of the bolts was full on tufa action; right touched tufas but also contained huge pockets. The former was harder but more interesting in my opinion.

Another steller tufa line. Might seem like a squeeze job but climbs totally different than the other routes next to it.

Great tufa climbing. Is slightly harder than Freds Meat Market, but not as large of an investment as Tufa Yard Dash!
