The central show-piece of the crag has some superb trips up amazing tufa formations. The routes are very popular and some of them are have become quite polished, the fact that they never get wet has exacerbated the problem.

Rigani
A three pitch (5c, 6c, 5c) outing that sees little traffic. Expect spaced bolting and a fair amount of vegetation.

Sustained climbing up to the highest point of the yellow wall. There is a short extension that heads right at 7b.

The first of the tufa routes starts with some tough pinch-gripping/layaways until you reach the proper stuff.

Straightforward but still excellent! Climb left of the massive tufa chandeliers which offer unique rests.

One of the best; if Carlsberg made 7a routes.... More brilliant tufa-wrestlings - full on 3D climbing.

The tough crux is always heavily chalked - the rest is easier.

Climb the tough wall between the two larger tufa systems. Oddly this one doesn't see much attention as the others here.

The right-hand of the main tufa systems is another absolute cracker - unique! It used to be given 7a+ in easier times! Best...

A long route up the right-hand edge of the cave improves with height.
