Rockfax Description
The right-hand tufa is hard to reach and pumpy thereafter. It has become popular to finish on the left, before the upper tufa. This is easier but still worth 7c+. © Rockfax

3rd 7c+, third go, third session. Great moves. Went direct up the tufa - better moves than moving left if you ask me.

Finally!! Did it 1st RP this session made a couple of mistakes but fortunately felt fit enough for them not to matter plus climbed the hard bits well. Feels like this took me ages but probably wasn't any more than 7 sessions spread over a year. My first 7c+

Not sure what I'm missing, but didn't really feel like a three-star-er! Got to the fourth bolt with my tips in agony from all the crozzle, and decided to back off. Maybe because it was cold???

Duncan Campbell 12/Jun/16 Lead dog

Argh! So close! So frustrating! Had three good goes getting past the tufa but falling on the moves going left to the flake! Becoming a thorn in my side this!

3rd evening session on the route- focussed on learning the moves before trying to send, which helped. Moved out left after the lower tufa, then back right after the thin flake.

2nd go. What an ace route! Was almost off a couple of times due to not really having a sequence. Not bad for a quick after work climb and getting to the crag at 6.30pm.

Finally, after a long albeit very intermittent acquaintance. Success on 5th try of the day, despite an epic brain freeze at the top - a good 10 mins of fraught procrastination just below the belay. First hardish tick of the season - time for champagne and skin restorer.

Did the slightly harder finish apparently. Hard and sharp but great.

Day started off hot so didn't hold out much hope but fortunately the clouds rolled in and I got a good couple of redpoints in, my first I gave it everything and fell at the highest point yet a move from a rest! 2nd redpoint I slightly messed up the feet and wasnt quite quick enough to get my left foot on to move left off the tufa. Pretty happy with that though. feel like im getting back to form after my injury! 4th session this year

nathanlee 05/Apr/16 Lead RP

Tried once last year and once the year before. Was a really good fight from a couple of bolts in

Duncan Campbell 25/Mar/16 Lead dog

Felt tougher than last time! But that is to be expected. Did all the moves so will be back Sunday with more skin!

felt nails on first acquaintance then on second go up it seemed to come together. My first RP go was a surprise with me falling off the tufa due to a foot fuck up. Next go was a bit of a farce due to savaged fingertips.

Wow, amazing route. Stunning tufa wresting. Best route I've done at Malham. 3rd redpoint

cool route but would rather forget about the excessive number of redpoints and days it took to actually bag it (especially the rp which ended with a fall from the flakes/jugs(!) after all the hard stuff). Surprise, surprise, felt easy 2nd rp today and was static on the mono move for the first ever time - grrr!
