|The overhanging drain-pipe tufa is stunning. 4 bolts to a lower-off. © ROCKFAX|
Climb the soaring (well, sort of) tufa until tricky moves right gain a hanging undercut / sidepull. Using this, pull right into shattered holds and then back left to the short finishing slab. Brilliant!
Rebolted 2009 Jon Ratcliffe: the 3rd clip has 3 bolts, 1 old and 2 new; use the lower of the 2 new bolts (the top one has not 'bitten' and is unsafe).

This climb is in 4 logbooks, and on 3 wishlists.
Annoyed: made it to the broken rock twice but as with each of the 4 attempts today (after a go to re-familiarise) the new high point proved more difficult than assumed. The moves going back left after the broken rock aren't so easy - I was pretty wrecked after trad efforts y'day so will give myself the benefit of the doubt. Superb and not so bad I have to come back...

sensational - a bit of Spain / Kaly in North Wales! 1st go: worked moves to 3rd clip, couldnt move right 2nd go: as first but got to 4th clip 3rd go: linked bottom to top in 3 sections. one hard move just before 3rd clip, will be interesting to see how clips feel and how long this takes to go...
