Had two days working this route, it felt alternatively desperate and doable. *don't read on if you want to onsight! * The last attempt felt good but just didn't have enough gas in the tank! I did some mad beta using two knee jams on the left side of the tufa out the hole to allow me to move up the last bit of tufa. This only held for me when I had my knee pad on! Have to remember to move up to a pinch right and crimp left with the knee in place before going up to the hole! Also had to extent the 3rd clip cos it's nails to clip otherwise!! It is a good climb! Interesting and very technical tufa climbing! Literally came here from kalymnos and thought it would feel easier than it did :) good challenge!

Third go - Blew a close Flash yesterday wrong handing myself in the rest hole at the last clip above the tufa pipe head and lobbing off only one big pocket move from the chains. Another bad punter fail ! At least it gave me the opportunity to work it & climb it better twice more today. Class, steep, tufa pipe line(and climbs better without the knee bars/pads!)

Amazing route, would hold it's own in Kaly. It's as hard as it looks, with nothing desperate, but not a single easy move up the anaconda snake. One to come back for. Solid 7b+.
