Tunnel Bluff South West Face. The crux is probably finding a dry, mosquito free day, but this climb, despite the controversy it may create from the local climbing ethics police will be enjoyed by many. It is fun, clean (for the moment!), and well protected. No "set ups" required.

Pitch #1: Get immediately into the beautiful right facing dihedral finger crack, jog right to a bolt and surmount an overhang (awesome movement!) ending on some slab moves to a two-bolt belay. 5.9, 15m.


Tunnel Bluff South West Face. Hike to the landmark tunnel as described. Hike up a small path on the right side (south) for 2 minutes to the base of the route. One may elect to start climbing directly from the path or scramble up a few meters to belay below the right facing dihedral crack.


Set of small camming units (C3s or TCUs), Nuts and QDs for 3 bolts.
