Great route, quite balancy technical climbing in atmospheric situation. Sophie came up with a rescue helicopter blasting over the top which added to the atmosphere!!

My turn to lead and this I liked; relatively easy to find gear placements and great bit ledges for footholds. Only the start is scary since you have to climb directly over a gully with crashing waves twenty feet below
