Description 

"Tubin' Dudes" is just one of the many great powerful routes to choose from near the Super Mario Boulder. Retreat back to this shady corner for meat locker temps. You'll want it nice and cool to bear down on some small holds.

Surmount an old stump, transfer to a boulder and then reach to a perfect horn to begin the climb. Nice flowing moves lead to a violent crux at the second bolt. Go straight up here or as guidebook author Mike Williams threatens "run the risk of being ridiculed for circumnavigating the move." The move is definitely big, but doesn't necessarily have to be a standard dyno.

Once established at the third bolt, veer right and lauch in to a V6 boulder problem clearing the roof. Clip the fourth bolt from a good slot just above the bolt. Rest up for some intriging lateral movement enroute to the chains.

This route has top quality stone and offers something that most bouldery routes lack, all the draws are easy to clip. Its refreshing to climb a bouldery route without the fear of blowing a clip.


Location 

Secluded behind the Super Mario Boulder. It is the central line on the short white wall.


Protection 

5 bolts + anchor
