Messed up the last few moves and got too pumped. Great climb at the last few bolts, though harder now that the lower-off is a bit higher!

Ellen Cobby - 2nd dog - 11/May/12

Not sure why I struggled on the boulder type bit at the top. I think I was feeling pumped and did the move wrong the first time, then felt I had to rest. Pretty annoyed at this poor attempt

Hard for the grade, maybe even 6a. Worth doing for the view, without that I'm not so sure. Was fun manhandling a couple of stalactites though!!

Fun warm up for the tufas, didn't expect the moves to be like they were. I think Pino found a better sequence. Climbed up and down a few times. Really gets the brain going in tufa mode.

Really hard for the grade (5c+), probably because it's really steep at the crux so no time to think it out. So I rested on a bolt for a bit.
