Overview
Blues Riff is one of the best crack climbs in Tuolumne. In the winter of 19981999 a gigantic block forming one wall of the first pitch 5.10a ow fell off, but an alternate face climbing variation was established soon thereafter. The 140-foot-long crux pitch was undamaged by the rockfall. The endless, slightly overhung endurance liebacking and hand jamming of this pitch is an awesome pumpfest.
