Description 

Comales Tamale is the tallest and probably the most aesthetic line on the Water Wall.

Fun moves in a shallow right facing corner as you step right past one roof, then turn a second roof on good hand jams with many features. The steepness eases for a short section before a steep final headwall with 2 bolts, which can be avoided to the left, keeping the route at 5.8. "5.8-climbing topropers" will be happier with a directional piece protecting this variation.


Location 

Middle of the Water Wall, pick out the highest anchor visible, with 2 bolts below it leading through the headwall.


Protection 

Nuts and cams to 2" to supplement the 2 bolts.
2-bolt anchor with chains at the top.
Use a 60m rope to toprope.

Everyone should attempt the 5.10 section! The moves are easy on great holds and the top out has monster jugg's avoid being threatened.
