Should have made the redpoint, but messed up the second crux and pumped out. Oh well. Nice line but Top 50 a bit generous for what is basically a two-move wonder.

Top tip: go high for the middle tufa in a lie-back move and reach into the bottom of the hole/slot above.

Easiest 6b+ ever (or maybe it was exactly my style). A serious of mantles followed by a huge ledge to rest on and a few harder pulls on flow-stone to the top. Beautiful.
