|28m. One of the best and most popular hard routes on the island - 'baby 8a'. The thin tufa gains a knee-bar at mid-height. The tufas run out on the upper wall, which is climbed on small holds and sees off many attempts. © ROCKFAX|
I confirm, this is fantastic (the bottom is 7b+/7c until a bad rest on a lip, then resistance on small holds)/to do absolutely.

7b+/c to a good kneebar (shame this section was wet) Then a couple of techy vert crimpy moves. Not particularly soft for 8a (for the continent at least)

Wicked route! 1st F8a, 4th redpoint - well happy!
Matt Fry - Lead RP - 19/Mar/09 with Alex Fry
Brilliant. Not as hard as other 8a's here but still not a 'baby 8a'. 1st redpoint. Not too far off on the flash...
