Topic - Gogarth grip

Pierre Maxted - on 16 Sep 2012
Enjoyed my first visit to Gogarth yesterday, seconded a couple of excellent climbs (Dde, Wen). I was climbing with someone who was climbing these slabs before I was born (no exaggeration), I've abseiled into sea cliffs loads of times before, the sea was quite calm yesterday, but I was _gripped_ standing on the belay ledges. While I was climbing I was fine, and I'm normally never happier than when I am tied-in to some solid anchors half way up a cliff enjoying the view. At least one of the guys in the party next to us also seemed to be taking deep breaths and trying to calm himself down, same as me, and he was no beginner either.
What is it about Wen Zawn that was making me so nervous? Do all the cliffs at Gogarth have this effect on people? Any other cliffs with a mysterious grip factor?
