33m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
An intimidating route with lots of exposure on its second pitch. Start under the perfect groove on the edge of the bay.
1) 4c, 15m. Climb the groove to a hanging stance at the fault-line.
2) 5b, 18m. Move up to the roofs then make an airy traverse left to the arete which is then followed to the top. Intimidating. © Rockfax

Pleasant and steady climbing. Wouldn't say it's 5b. Great position coming out onto the arete on P2. Bit loose near the top. Lead P1.

led the 5b pitch. good gear and places to stop and arrange gear easily. top out is steep and loose. careful testing required before trusting the holds. pulled off a block the size of a small coffee table but luckily avoided it hitting me in the chest!

Sea was too rough to get to the routes we wanted, and this looked fun. loose and dirty enough to class as esoterica, but fun climbing.
