Nice striations in the rock.

Description 

Rufies is a sport variation to Blitz Girls. Begin on Blitz Girls and after the 5th bolt, trend left, following 3 more spacious bolts to the top anchor. This is a nice alternative if you don't have trad gear for the finish of Blitz Girls.


Location 

The route shares the start with Blitz Girls, which is 30m up the 3rd class ramp. This is the leftmost bolt line.


Protection 

8 bolts, top anchors.

A bit easier than Zebra, nice route. A good warmup.

If you have a 60m rope, tie a knot in the end of the rope. When you lower off, you wind up 10 feet up from the belay spot. You can also set an anchor with #3.5 & #4.5 Camalots.

Nice photo, Leo. Griz said he plans to add a bottom belay bolt. (That's the pro location Leo referenced above.)
