Rockfax Description
An odd route, an easy slab followed by tufas and then the crux - actually reaching the lower-off. © Rockfax

Very easy slab to upper tufas, bolting maybe not quite where wanted, plus some water seepage. Lost confidence after feet popped off a couple of polished holds. Got to crux but didn't commit to long reach to last bolt.

This felt more like 6b+ to me which is the grade it gets in the new guide, I think. Very easy slab, then some interesting tufa climbing, followed by a really powerful move to clip the chains. Although Jim used an interesting back jam technique which looked like less effort...

. I found this a pretty hard lead. Bit of fighting to keep moving needed. 6b+ in my guide book.

Tufa is not my "game" but 6a+ for this route?? Kicked my butt from pillar to post and back again.

Pretty strenuous at the grade but the holds are there.

The pocket section is good, but didn't like the positioning of the chains.
