Not a good way off the beach.

Route: Final Straw
Camera used: Canon PowerShot A810
Abseiled in twenty metres up the hill/North from the stream that comes down through Marsland woods, down a loose shale slope that I thought would make a reasonable exit when the tide came in - my sixty metres rope was about five short so I slid down the final rubble/mud ramp. The rope was fixed I could use it to help on the way back - I came up the rope with a prussik, then belayed partner up. Was tough for both parties and could have escaped more easily off the back of the Gull Rock headland (above Haile Selasse probably best). Oh, it's a route...

Mmmm - that looks fun! For my sins I have descended and ascended the ridge above Haille Selassie - not recommended!

Prussiking was OK. My partner tried to 'climb' it and was less enthusiastic. Will try the alpine escape next time. Or not.
