[Unknown climber on the classic tufa, 2 kb]20m. Amazing tufa line, with sustained climbing for the first half of the route. The supplement gives the grade as 6b(+), and in my opinion the + is totally justified

Not the best choice of warm up route with 6b+ being my limit (the first lower grade route to come into the shade). Rested at the 3rd and 4th bolt - still pretty pleased though, fantastic line.

Attempted to onsight and took a big fall on the 3rd bolt - meet liz in mid air! Dogged it, then TR-ed it, but didn't have time or botle to redpoint it
Chris the Tall - TR RP - 15/Oct/08 with Liz

Knackered that day, and could not get up this with any style. But got up it in the end, after a bit of a grump.
