45m. An impressive line but although the protection is adequate has its fair share of poor rock. Start at the base of The Ramp. Climb to a large ledge then traverse left to ascend a crack to the fault-line. Follow the dodgy pillar and crack with care to the top. © ROCKFAX

Sue took a big whipper off the crux (best part of 8m), had a rest on the ground, went back up, placed a cam in the diagonal crack leading up to the crux (making it much safer), changed approach and got up it fine. I found it fairly tough on second! Using the flake out right on the crux rather than just the knobbly bits in the groove to the left made a big difference. Some 5b/c sequences higher up as well.

Mistaken for Ocean Boulevard as forgot the guide book at the top! A very obvious line. Got pumped, grabbed something in desperation, it came off and so did I! Got it second go.

Really good route, good gear, and only the odd bit of suspect rock to keep things exciting. Classic of the genre!
