From the anchors of SS Ultrabrutal, head straight up the bolted line. There are cruxy moves between the first and second bolts (wide dihedral and thin traverse left) as well as immediately past the second bolt (long reach off a side-pull/undercling). After the crux, enjoy varied climbing with some moves that still require attention, but are easier.

This climb is typical of The Country, with its crux/rest/crux/rest sequence. Finger size and height might determine how hard this is for you. Frequently Top-Roped in combination with SS Ultrabrutal with a 70m rope.

If you climb Tunnel Vision, you will be selling yourself short if you don't continue on to do Angora Grotto, which is a gem of a route situated just above it. AG's grade is slightly harder (.11a) but there is only one well-protected move at that grade. The most efficient way to link these is to clip the Tunnel Vision anchors as you go by on lead and continue to scramble up and right (15ft?) to the anchors at the base of the Angora Grotto crack. Belay your second up from here. Mountain Project--Angora Grotto
