20m. A hard start up the elephants trunk which is very hard if you climb direct (there is a right-hand variant). Fine climbing up the wall above with another tricky move by the 5th bolt. This upper move can be by-passed bringing the whole route down to 6c+. Not in current guidebook.

dont understand this description. The tufa is climbed pretty direct and fairly straightforward. Cant see any possibility of a right hand variation. Lovely climb, low in the grade

There is definately two distinct lines, the 7a is a long pull on small holds direct, with the right hand variation much easier!
