Fun squishing through the middle bit...

alice fuller ?/Oct/17 Lead RP

Ace route.. went Woj's way out onto the top of the tufa before the little cave... but it freaked me a bit, as a fall from there would be unpleasant.

Superb climbing all the way. 2 nice crux sections. Made up to flash this first climb of the day.

Went for the onsight and failed at the crux... Second attempt was much the same as I hadn't looked at the crux holds... So then I checked em out and found the undercling, thus avoiding the big dyno. Sent next attempt. 😃

Brilliant route! Frustratingly my foot popped after the crux on the onsight, so forced to make do with the rp. Probably one of the best routes of the holiday, interesting, sustained climbing.

Yay, my first 7a+. Long overdue. Beautiful route and good for short people as there are opportunities for lots of stemming to get higher.

A really top route, great climbing and position. Did during a brief period of a decent breeze. Not too hard for the grade but harder than 7a. Bottom end E5 6a.

Holiday RP project for this trip. Some brilliant tufa climbing, an excellent rest then a steep and strenuous crux. A classy route. 3 times working it then it went 3rd redpoint (but 1st after finally sussing my crux sequence).

quite technical bridging up the lower tufa and quite powerful pulling through the bulge. good but not a patch on Lucky Strike IIRC (or maybe i was just tired?)
