/ gogarth -tides
the north wales guide book says you can ab in even at high tide. was thinking of doing atlantis or kalahari. is it possible to do them at high tide? if so what are you belaying oo, a ledge or hanging stance?
am i right in saying both mouse trap zawn & red wall are accessable at high tide?
any other high tide recommendations around e1/e2 that are on the sea cliffs?
Mousetrap and red wall are both non tidal as is yellow wall.
I've never bothered to check tides when going to Castell Helen which I guess means the small ledges and things down there are non tidal.
Failing that you could always abb to the mid height ledge and do true moments/freebird or the main pitch of north west passage or something.
Not sure about Kalahari, not done it. Think the traverse to get to the start might be a bit more tidal but that's half remembered beta from other people so may be unreliable.
thanks for the replies. i always fancies resolution direct but i can't jam & i hear it has a jamming pitch. my partner can't jam either.
Does it? I don't remember one. I can't jam either.

Definitely no jamming pitch. Easy for E2.
It certainly wouldn't be how I would describe it.
I might have popped a hand jam in once or twice in the route but I am pretty sure I would have remembered any sustained section of compulsory jamming because I would probably have fallen off.

Certainly is. It isn't very sustained at all, most of it is easy, and it has some great juggy flakes but no real crack climbing to speak of. I did it in 3 pitches which involves a daft uncomfortable belay in the middle of the best climbing - I'd do it in 2 big pitches if I did it again.
great, thanks jon. two big pitches it is (50m enough?)
