Rockfax Description
Popular and polished - sustained but never desperate. Start below a short tufa and climb the steep wall moving right to jugs in a niche. Pull left onto the wall and finish direct. Excellent. © Rockfax

First route of the day what a cracker! no real polish on this just glaze on the flow stone on the bottom section.

great route, quite sustained, didn't find it too polished, trickiest bit was moving right at half height to the niche.

I think the rock here is generally very smooth but it's had a good polishing too. Not sure if it was because it was last climb of the day, but this pumped the hell out of me. I had a harder time on this than the 7a I did earlier on in Alcalali...

Felt tough for the grade, apparently the crux can be quite cryptic, but only adds to the fun.
