Football fan*** 8a
[Working 'Football fan'., 1 kb]28m.

Rockfax Description
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

UKC Logbook Description
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.

Ticklists: ROCKFAX Mallorca: Top 50.

Wicked route! 1st F8a, 4th redpoint - well happy!

Brilliant. Not as hard as other 8a's here but still not a 'baby 8a'. 1st redpoint. Not too far off on the flash...
