A magnificent route up the left-hand tufa system with the crux right at the top. The gear is sparse low down and the rock at the start is a bit cruddy.


Nice route....the topo suggests going straight up the bulge from the ground but there are bolts to the left in the chimney which is a better option.

Nice climbing up the tufa the a bit of hard move over the final bulge. Bolts are spaced down low but are fine on the harder moves.

Chimney is the obvious if run-out option and of course the route moves right at the top. Very fine climbing on the upper section with a hard, powerful pull to get established on the upper face - solid for the grade because of this.

Good route but 2 stars, not 3. There are bolts in the hueco filled "chimney" at the start (to the left of the line in the topo) which is the obviously line to take. The middle section is blocky and slopy but interesting. The short tufa section is the highlight of the route. As you follow the bolts you move right and tackle the roof. Unfortunately, there is no real anchor. At 29-30m you arrive at one bolt with a ring. Use this as a hanging anchor.

Fun climbing threw the hueco chimney with sufficiant bolts (first a little bit high, but solid pockets) - only one section before the tufas has longer distance and needs careful route reading - found the final bulge to hard for 6c (block the sloper). 3 stars are ok - but best 50?
