Questionable whether this should really be an onsight. At the top I had sweaty hands and no chalk left so I pulled over to the route on the left for the final bolt. Managed to scrape my way up the lower section up the tufa, only just though! Really good pumpy climbing. One of the best single pitch sport routes I've done.

Second go. Went the wrong way (too far left) before trying to stand on the tufa on the onsight attempt!

Second go. Tried to flash with some general beta, fell off by the penultimate bolt (before clipping it!). Brilliant techy wackiness.

There is a three ring bolt loweroff at the top of the columar part of the tufa. This is an excellent 6c/+ to here. Above the climbing is initally quite cool on the black vague tufa but sadly ends on crappy blind painful crimps.

The imaculate fat tufa avoided by life is sweet. Awesome!
