[Mike Arnold on the finishing moves of Life is Sweet 6c at Makinodromo El Chorro, 3 kb]A brilliant and long pitch. Climb up to the downward-pointing cone-shaped tufa and pull up rightwards to gain the superb and pumpy upper wall. Photo on page 136. © ROCKFAX
Amusing. Bounce up for the ringing tufa and keep going.
