This fun line was probably the best warmup in the Tufa City area. Now John's Meat Market might make the best warmup. Engaging climbing on cool holds and is quite a bit longer than the other moderate routes.


Main Part of Tufa City, Second route past a large boulder. To the left is Millenium Meltdown, to the right is La Linea Negra.

This route has all the business down low and is much easier up top on cool tufas.

Not a good warm-up (IMO). In your face at the first 3 bolts and if it's in the sun, the crimpy edges are kinda tough! Really a quality route though so maybe save it for late afternoon.
