Rockfax Description
A superb, steep tufa climbing with one hard move at 1/3 height. Polished but this shouldn't be a problem except when it is really hot/humid - then it is much harder. © Rockfax

brilliant route - fell off last move a few years ago but went down smoothly enough today.

JamesWilliams 16/Oct/16 Lead RP

What amazingly fun climb! Tried to onsight placing draws and got to the 2nd to last bolt and faced a tricky move pulling the final overlap which I was just too pumped for and took the airtime. Onsighted to the top came down and had a 2 hour rest ( was fully boxed ) got back on and put it to bed!

Had an onisght go quickly before we left, really didn't think much of this, crux was cool fingery climbing but the upper section was just polish, reachy and big bolt gaps. Got about 3/4 of the way up before pumping out, happy to get it stripped though as it was so sunny!
