Probably the best route I did at Ceuse, and it would have been better if the tufa hadn't been dripping (and without the wet section around the 4th bolt). Good way to end the trip.

Just superb, all had gone quiet and light fell on the valley below. Perfect conditions and I even onsighted a Ceuse 7 - wow! Pack your arms, keeps going all the way, feels quite run out in 1 or 2 spots but you're never far from a good hold. Tricky just after you pass the overlap, a bit of urgent hand swapping needed here.
