Just spent the second day working on this rig. Wow, is it hard!

11+ tufa climbing leads to a pretty good shake out jug. Then bust either a huge all points off dyno to a good hold (almost stuck it twice) that probably weighs in at around V6, or figure out some trickery on some really crappy holds (probably V6 as well).

Once you establish on the jugs, there's one more boulder problem (V5) to a 5.12 headwall.

A tricky move guards the ancors too.

All in all, this is an AMAZING route. Incredibly fun and challenging movement and super high quality stone.
