Rockfax Description
An incredible frozen sheet of flowstone pipes. The initial section is insecure and slippery if taken direct. © Rockfax

βeta: I don't think this is over-rated at all! This follows a clear line on weird and wonderful rock. The first bolt is high and was scary to onsight as I muffed the sequence but there is an easier way. I loved this route.

βeta: Do most people start right of the first bolt and don't engage with the tufa proper until after clipping the second bolt?

βeta: Over-rated. Inbalanced difficulty. Bad placing of first bolt. Nastily polished at start.

βeta: First bolt is high but easy moves to reach it. Crux is reaching (and clipping) the second bolt, I found it ridiculously slippy but then this was my first route on flowstone. The rest of the route is much easier if you're not too pumped from the crux!
