My first tufa route. Great thuggy grove. Harder and more pumpy than Poseidon next door, so 6c. Shame its short and stops at the top of the tufa pillar.

Hard moves on slopy tufas - I would give this at least 6b+. Thankfully there are plenty of opportunities to rest on bridges.

Great short route with classic tufa bridging. One awkward move making it the b grade it seems, the rest is good bridges and plenty of hands free rests.
