Great climb, nicely exposed. A bit of vegetation but none on the hand holds :). The toughest move is when going around the overhang, then it's HS :)

Led p.1 which is nasty and grassy with two nesting gulls to step around. 2nd pitch is quite good. (Johannes linked p.2 + 3)

The Cloisters' fulmar seemed a bit agitated but negotiations with the Ugly Bugs fulmar proceeded more to my satisfaction so up we went. Good steep climbing - crux: fulmar #2.

Should have paid more attention to the guidebook. Spent ages trying to work out where to go from the pedestal described in the book. Eventually committed to the unlikely looking traverse out left through the green lichen to gain the finishing groove and some gear. Adventurous VS!

Another pair on Death Cap, a fulmar on Cloisters....Ugly Bugs Ball all clear! Nice route.
