Like climbing a bar of soap. Still good though.

Great fun :) thought the crimpy bottom bit was the hardest part. The tufas were such fun !

Brilliant pitch that looks much harder than it is. Possibly the right grade for a change or maybe I'm just getting soft. Bottom bit felt tricky but perhaps that was just the humidity? E3 5c?

Redpoint exercise. Slipped off stupidly on clean attempt, but got it fine apart from that.
