Rockfax Description
An incredible conglomerate formation at the start gains more conventional rock and climbing on the upper wall. Take care at the start, as the rock is less than perfect. © ROCKFAX

not a bad route at all, tho some of the early flowstone rang a little hollow, wouldn use it as a warm up too often tbh..but worth climbing if only once

Feels like the beginning jugs are going to fall off the crag. Ace patches of flow stone at the top.

Halfway up realised gulls were nesting on the right of route. They then dive-bombed my for the remainder of the route.

Would have been clean if it weren't for seagulls surprising and scaring the shit out of me :(

Strong wind chill factor: numb fingers made the crux feel very hard. The first runner is an in-situ thread that is in urgent need of replacement.

Got to the ledge then a very angry seagull swooped out and was trying to poo on me. There is a nest of about 4 seagulls. BE WARNED. downclimbed to save the onsight!
