Rockfax Description
Popular and polished - sustained but never desperate. Start below a short tufa and climb the steep wall moving right to jugs in a niche. Pull left onto the wall and finish direct. Excellent. © Rockfax

I think the rock here is generally very smooth but it's had a good polishing too. Not sure if it was because it was last climb of the day, but this pumped the hell out of me. I had a harder time on this than the 7a I did earlier on in Alcalali...
