Or should that go down as a redpoint (as I top-roped it two months ago)? Cold, windy and shortly before it started to get dark.

Apart from two hard moves on the tufa the rest is glorious jug pulling.

Got the tufa section on the second attempt. One I wanted to have a go at leading, had there been time.

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.
