Rockfax Description
A well-established and testing classic that features climbing on an amazing set of flowstone organ pipes. Move up easily rightwards, and pass a thread (sometimes missing) to the first bolt. Climb the flowstone pipes which gradually ease off after some difficult pulls low down. © Rockfax

Yup still not a fan of flowstone, where are you suppose to put your feet! Harder than I would have expected for a 6a.

If going direct where the 2 routes split the move feels way harder than a 6a+ move, more like 6c...

BEWARE LOWER OFF BOLTS IN HOLLOW ROCK!!!!!!!!! in an area of generally loose / poor rock. Otherwise a very good route but getting polished and awkwardly bolted so very often you have to clip from smears and side pulls when there was a stable position to clip from if the bolts were 30 to 50 cm lower.

Tried to smear whilst using the two finger pocket and lots of mud came off my shoes! Wiped it off on my trousers and made the move + clip but slipped off shortly afterwards. Went up again but didn't fancy the slippery footwork and backed off.

Was well happy with my effort on this. There's a tricky move lower down moving up on a small pocket and slippery flutings for feet. A beautiful pinching sequence up a "organ pipe", out left slightly, a bit of a rest on two cupped slopers. Got so pumped, thought I was going to have to rest, yelled "TAKE" then thought, bugger it, whats the worse that could happen, apart from falling from the (scarily run out..) next bolt. Went on through grunting and swearing, massively pumped. Managed it though and was really pleased with myself! Not often I just go for things like that!

Great climb, great rock. Bolted very badly (long run-out at the finish - when you least need it, and very high first bolt). Will return to lead it cleanly.

nice climb although I was confused about the route at one point as there are so many bolts on this wall now

Felt harder than the 6bs I onsighted last week but probably not used to Portland yet. Brilliant route though and well worth the struggle!

Almost an onsight, I remember trying it four years ago and not doing it but I certainly couldn't remember the moves.

Only just. Nearly went wrong way for final moves. Brilliant route but thought Cake Walk was equally as good.

Mega classic F6a+ up tufa holds. Hands free rest before climbing eases. Feels exposed due to winding approach one=ce you climb above the tree line.
