BETA PHOTO: The Worm Turns


couple hard moves on an amazing tufa into a couple dynamic moves to jugs. Easy victory jug topout.


just up the hill from parking this problem is hidden in a small cave like area about 100 feet from the road


couple pads is good.

V11 for sure, but I'm not so certain about that PG-13 rating. It's perfectly safe.

This thing is like 5 feet tall at the lip of the boulder, I don't think it necessitates the PG-13 rating. General audiences may well be in attendance. It's probably V10 as well.

"The Worm Turns" tufa is low enough to the ground (4 feet?) that a PG-13 rating isn't necessary. The problem can be easily protected with crash pads. The ground is angled about the same as the tufa so you're never very far off the ground.
