Description:

Obvious gully system up shorter buttress. Crux is last move after all bolts are clipped. Route becomes progressively harder but rewards with killer tufa crux at top. Rarely sees a flash

4 out of 5 stars IndeSteadence Day!

Finally redpointed this route. Crux before the anchor has always stumped me and I never remember the beta because I don't get on it very often.

Have I mentioned I love tufas? Just a note: This is NOT the fa. Jbone bolted and sent first, earlier on the same day. I think he is off by a year on his ascent note. I could be wrong...

5 out of 5 stars cinco de homestead warm up!

I think it's more like 11c, it just gets harder and harder. Next time I'm going for a no hands rest I thought of later. The finishing tufa was harder than it looked.
