Lovely route with plenty of varied climbing. Crux not too bad with a long reach.

Really lovely climbing! Not pumpy or hard, but tufa crux took a little working out yet felt easy (with a scream) once I knew how.

Though it pains me to say it, as I rarely flash 6c, this is very easy for 6c; feels easier than Corta y Dulce

What a route! Almost got the onsight the day before but got too pumped centimetres from the lower off and took my first real whipper. Pulled the ropes and tried again that day but without joy. Luckily everyone agreed to come back the next day, and after seeing Tom cruise up it in a cow suit I had no choice but to get the redpoint. My first 6C and an amzing climb to boot. Loved it!

Desperate on move at end of tufa if you cant climb tufas. Which I can't. Didnt know what this was when I did it, someone told me it was a 6b... Great route.

A tough section past a tufa on an overhanging wall. Goes with dynamic moves onto a lovely headwall.
