Difficult climb for a S, the corner is very awkward (IMHO). Put in a runner right off the platform and my hand slipped on the soapy rock and I fell, would have fallen into the sea if it wasn't there. Iain second.

Matt300 - Lead O/S - 25/May/14

Definitely an 'interesting' climb. Definitely harder and not quite as good as Second Corner but still worthwhile. Fine till about halfway up and then the holds start to disappear and you have to do some quite creative climbing to advance. The crux for me was the moves to get past the overhang in the left hand wall where the crucial chockstone in the crack is about the only hand hold and feet are few and far between, i seemed to employ some form of back-and-footing-lay-backing-palming-down maneuver with some delicate feet to get past it. Then ended up back-and-footing-lay-backing much of the rest of the route too.

The most gripped I've felt in a fair while. Slippery in the extreme that day, I didn't trust *any* of the holds (and for good reason). If it looks massively greasy, it is! Ugh..

Got a bit nervous on this one. Moving on to the ramp next to the aret from the greasy corner took me a while to commit to despite good gear and big holds.

Found very hard. Large overhang to get round right at the start. Half way up reach the crux and could not get past it. Descended then climbed again with assistance of a shunt for extra foot holds. Not happy with my ability.
