Groove Tube*** 6a
[Dana entering "The Groove Tube"... "its like birth, but backwards", 3 kb]25m. Appropriately named up a unique, fun formation. Consequently queues can develop at peak times. Take 12 quick draws. Titanium bolts and easier than graded.

First route in Tonsai and of holiday. Didn't think why the wall might be called Fire Wall soon found out when the sun was beating down on us. The view at the top is amazing. Great introduction to Tonasi, being a beginner I was pretty glad to have made it to the top with out a rest on a 6a, i was told very shortly after that its might be over graded
