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

Superb climbing - continental level awesome. First 6C onsight, and a beauty of a route to get it on.

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

Qisheng Xie 02/Apr/17 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.

first 6C outdoors... tried it once on lead and returned the weekend after for the retro flash. amazing route with varied styles of climbing... the steep flow stone at the top was very satisfying to finish on.

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'.

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.
