Located just to the right of Snuffy Smith is an often overlooked climb in the area. Tuff it Out offers a fun start climbing up through steep but easy honeycomb pockets to the top of a pillar. From there, things start getting a little weird, but fun. Step out left onto the face and work through a sequence of small moves setting up feet and hands that then set you up for a final reach above a mini roof to a jug. The moves through the middle section never seem to become more intuitive even though they aren’t too hard.
This climb is located climbers left of The Peanut. Walk up the wooden steps past Snuffy Smith. You'll know this climb when you see the honeycomb pocketed pillar that you start up. The first bolt is more precautionary for everyone involved since the climber starts above on a little deck to gain the pillar. It's close quarters on the deck for you belayer who should probably stand a bit lower on the terraced rocks nearby.

Given Black Diamond’s reputation for strong and durable hard goods, we decided to give their 9.9mm rope a try as our go to gym rope. The rope is priced right and works great out of the box but early signs of wear in the gym make it hard to give it the nod as a preferred gym rope.
