Second ever 6c onsight. Significant crux at the tufa which me being so tall certainly helped but the heinous mantel afterwards was not good being so tall! After that although it’s juggy the route keeps coming so it’s no roll over!

First 6c onsight.

First 6c lead! Cheeky heel hook got me through the crux!

Pleased with this as haven't been on the sharp end of a rope for a couple of months before this trip. Crux was tricky up the tufa and then juggy and pumpy all the way to the top.

Really nice route! Went up to get Paddy's gear out at the end of the day, and couldn't be bothered to try and lead it. Really regretting it as I'm pretty sure I would have on-sighted it.

Very nice route, mega jugs all the way to the top. One slightly reachy move going from the tufa to the top of the ledge in the middle but all good holds, so just commit!

Tried once last year and got pumped after the crux. No problems this year. A lot of fun.

Or should that go down as a redpoint (as I top-roped it two months ago)? Cold, windy and shortly before it started to get dark.

What a route! Almost got the onsight the day before but got too pumped centimetres from the lower off and took my first real whipper. Pulled the ropes and tried again that day but without joy. Luckily everyone agreed to come back the next day, and after seeing Tom cruise up it in a cow suit I had no choice but to get the redpoint. My first 6C and an amzing climb to boot. Loved it!

A tough section past a tufa on an overhanging wall. Goes with dynamic moves onto a lovely headwall.
