Steady except 20ft central section, 6c+ more likely

Supposed to be a second rest day for my skin but couldn't resist climbing a couple of the easy classics - good techy tufa line into a fun finish with bigger moves

Wow! Just brilliant. 6c+ seems fair because there is some tricky climbing that feels 7a ish but the obvious rests are so fantastic that they make the overall route an easier proposition.

1RP after messing up the start. 6c+ seems fair

Barn-doored on a tufa pinch half-way up after using wet holds lower down. Held on somehow!

Abortive OS effort, should have got back on for the RP. Spooky stepping onto the massive mushroom when it vibrates.
