Description:

Fun and hard tufa pulling. The first twenty feet are nothing special, but the following thirty feet are great. Really fun movement over cool features. Crux is at the top. It is the last route on the right side of Tufa City before you get to the rope access that leads to Tufa Yard Dash and the other routes at that ledge. Unfortunately, the last bolt is in a less than favorable spot. I would have placed the bolt closer to the clipping stance, but the rock was very hollow sounding when tapping it with my hammer. I even went as far as to drill a hole where I wanted the bolt and got nothing but dust, no rock. I placed it in the closest solid stone. The clip adds a little inconvenience, but at least it is safe.
