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

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.

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

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!
