Mat Welsh 26 Jan, 2017 Lead O/S Steady tufa pipe section into a tricky wide crack followed by a techy headwall. Sustained & absorbing climbing all the way, with a thin, committing traverse left to the chains - More Spanish limestone at it's best ! Note : The 7b chains are 2 clips left of the (wrong)chains shown in Rockfax guide.
