Rockfax Description
32m. An excellent pitch. Start up the left-leaning ramp. Direct up the upper section is harder than the left-hand option. © Rockfax

First outdoor 7a+ onsight (but I'm now told by locals that the direct line I took is actually 7b). Very good climb once you get into the meat of it. Stay on the direct line of tufas and you'll be rewarded with an excellent and pumpy climb.

Fell just below chain on 1st attempt. Sent on 2nd go and enjoyed it even more.

Cool route with a choice of lines. The leftward line is more flowy and requires less pinch power

Took a very direct line so felt pretty hard. easier if you snake around more in the mid section!
