40m. An atmospheric and beautifully structured classic poised over a hidden sea cavern. Seepage can affect this route. From the starting ledge, traverse the break leftwards, until almost at the sea cavern. Launch up the leftward-arching corner for 10m and overcome the bulge on the left to gain an easier exit on the right. A variation The Strawberry that Killed the Seal moves left 1m from the base of the arching groove and follows positive edges to rejoin the parent route (7b, S1). © ROCKFAX
