Portions of the approach and cliffs of this area are on private land. MORE INFO >>>


Start up an easy short sharp bulge to an easy slab. Run up a cool tufa system, that gets progressively more overhanging. Carefully climb past some fragile large tufa's to large huecos. Rest here and pull the final steep moves to a nice rest and easy finish.


Towards the end of Tufa City. Between the routes "Via Ferrari" and "Short & Stiff". Look for the double tufa system starting up the slab, to an overhang.

Great introduction to the Tufa City. Not to hard but super steep.
