Rockfax Description
35m. Justifyably famous. An unrelenting pitch up the central line of tufas that sports a hard start and a pulse-enhancing finish. There are thankfully a few good shakeouts along the way. © Rockfax

Second try today. Had 3 pretty terrible sessions on it previously where I kept doing silly things like trying to knee-bar with the wrong leg and slipping off during no hands rests! Went pretty easily today with all the beta sorted despite the intense heat and bleeding fingers. Psyched to do it without a kneepad having borrowed one on my first session only to return padless with many of the rests too painful/slippery to use.

Absolutely amazing climbing. Dropped the onsight with my hand an inch from the finish hold. I blame the dodgy tick marks. Fired it off 2nd go. Brilliant way to end an amazing week in El Chorro. I will be back.

Brilliant. Felt pretty robbed on the flash - right hand got stuck in slot as i went for throw move to juggy hole! Happy to settle for 2nd go though

Incredible route. Managed all the moves fairly easily but couldn't imagine linking it all without finding some better rests... Need to get cannier on tufa.

Fantastic, especially the top which I dropped on my previous attempt.

Beautiful line,it's baffling if you are not fit enough for a good onsight attempt, however after working it the sequence really falls into place

In the cloud with fleece and hat on. great route.

Ed Booth 28/Mar/09 Lead dnf

It was raining and some spanish guys had the clips in so had an onsight burn. Got to just below the central big formations. Was laughing to much to take it seriously. This would go with a bit more knowledge and time. Holds are huge!
