Rockfax Description
The right-hand tufa is hard to reach and pumpy thereafter. It has become popular to finish on the left, before the upper tufa. This is easier but still worth 7c+. © Rockfax

felt nails on first acquaintance then on second go up it seemed to come together. My first RP go was a surprise with me falling off the tufa due to a foot fuck up. Next go was a bit of a farce due to savaged fingertips.

Wow, amazing route. Stunning tufa wresting. Best route I've done at Malham. 3rd redpoint

Very satisfying to have done it so quickly

So close, so many times (but not close enough)

cool route but would rather forget about the excessive number of redpoints and days it took to actually bag it (especially the rp which ended with a fall from the flakes/jugs(!) after all the hard stuff). Surprise, surprise, felt easy 2nd rp today and was static on the mono move for the first ever time - grrr!
