/ Speke's Mill Mouth - is it tidal?
South side of Brownspear point - Mainsail, Wager etc are accessable most tides
North side, Hotpoint etc, start a hundred feet above the sea.
Waterfall routes are way above the sea.
It has been a while....shame, I thought those routes were really good.
If you go, post back feedback. Pressure Drop has been on the radar for a long time. Need some bottle, any beta welcome!
Pump fest? Bad feet?
> Pump fest? Bad feet?
Neither, lower section, fairly straightforward, but not so well protected, upper section, well protected, thin diagonal crack in steep slab / wall. take a look at some of the photos, eg http://www.ukclimbing.com/images/dbpage.html?id=81847 here the climber is in the middle of the harder upper section. It's a lovely route, well worth doing, but I suspect it would be difficult for the belayer to keep the ropes out of the stream at the moment.
Thanks for the local knowledge. One more Q: what/where is the best warm up? Is there one of the tidal crags (3hs either side of H tide seems the norm) from same car park and then a stroll over to Spekes Mill when the tide comes in?
