Rockfax Description
20m. Excellent tufa climbing up the slightly overhanging wall - crux moves at the top! (beta: move right rather than finish direct) © Rockfax

Couldn't climb the big tufa, hauled up on the rope to get the quick-draws.

After two attempts I couldn't (didn't) make the crux move at the second top clip...dammit! Revenge will be sweet

Fun 6c tufa / stalactite climbing

Great to try climbing these incredible tufas. Found the moves below the last clip pretty tough. Noticed the next guy doing it getting a side on seat rest on the tufa half way up

Tried it a few times with Tom on the 16th, the crux at the top took a while to figure out. Came back with Ben and worked it on top rope a bit, before sending it. First 6c, thanks for the long belay Ben!

almost got the on sight, but last hold eluded me! hugged the top mushroom, not particularly relishing the fall, as hadn't clipped last bolt (couldn't reach and then too awkward to stop and clip) first 'big-ish' fall for me, as normally down climb and take! Progress has been made!

Went for the onsight and got to the last two clips. Pretty sustained but straight forward with the crux being the top section. Might go back for it
