Rockfax Description
A great route; the tufas are steep and juggy, and the climbing is more exposed than your average Portland 6c. © Rockfax

Lovely big holds at the top. Looks tricky from below but quite soft grading.

Qisheng Xie 02/Apr Lead O/S

A nice route with some Spanish feels to it, if it wasn't chossy at the start this would have been a Portland top 50.

climbed to retrieve my seized-up screwgate. The first time I have ever reached for a quickdraw and thought 'Oh bother, my mole-wrench is getting in the way'.

with Lyndsay
Jonathan Emett 10/Jul/11 Lead O/S

really good! the dust doesn't interfere with the great moves. Lots of bolts, I run out of quickdraws.

w.pettet-smith 08/Mar/11 Lead O/S

good once it gets going. very easy for the grade, though i was still pleased and pumped as havn't climbed for a while. lovely portland on a bright spring day.
