Nice, techy, pockety, tufa climb, bridge between the tufas for a good no hands rest if needed.

Training weekend at the grotto. Koppa has bolted an extension to Taz so I did this today. Still a bit dusty with one or two dubious tufas, but good Pumpy climbing. Grade will probably be 7a. Worthwhile.

Went off left just after the bulge to some chalked none holds and couldn't get to the jug. Got it next go. Didn't bridge tho managed to climb straight up the tufa the whole way maybe 6c+ like that's as it's quite powerful and pumpy compression

Dave Turnbull 14/May/16 Lead O/S

Really good. Fortunately the crux is tufa bridging up the groove so not too pumpy. Getting well worn, but still OK

Great climb although above my limit. Would have been nice to work a bit more to see if I could send it. Brilliant pinching moves on the bottom of the tufa and moving off into bridging and laybacking further up.
