Again another top 50 route. On my top 50 route day. Not much more to say. Fun flow stone tufa section to good pockets my favourite kind of sport climbing, soft 6b+

Easiest 6b+ ever (or maybe it was exactly my style). A serious of mantles followed by a huge ledge to rest on and a few harder pulls on flow-stone to the top. Beautiful.
