Tufa-Groove*** 6b+

Rockfax Description
Stunning climbing with fewer helpful holds than you expect, though it is never too desperate. Follow the groove - steep for the grade. Look where you end up on the lower-off! © ROCKFAX

Some rusty bolts near the top made this less enjoyable than it should have been... Could use a re-fresh.

Fell off between the 5th & 6th clip and cut my finger. A bit disappointed I didnt get to finish this.

The line looks stunning from below and is incredible but really sustained when on it. Needed to be a bit fresher to have a chance of getting this one.

mrteale - Lead β - 06/Mar/14

My style for the grade, the size of the holds due to the steepness and bridging due to the groove made for comfortable climbing, only just classing as an onsight as I'd been told the area of the crux and the clips where in, found the moves before the anchor physically hardest though.

Last done 15 years ago? Clips put in on the lead.

Really nice climbing, the crux for me was at the third bolt. the rest was nice sustained climbing with loads of bridging rests.
