Beautiful. Crux pulling on horrifficly sandy dirty holds was spicy.

High crux adds to the spice.

Whoa. Did on my own at the end of the day with a big sea. Very exciting! Topped out with eyes on stalks. I don't like DWS but this ranks as one of my best climbing experiences to date.
Duncan Campbell - Solo O/S - 23/Aug/14 with Rach
scary with big sea, shouted down to Rachel for beta as I wasn't expecting the crux to be where it was. 5c

Trying to persuade Angus to follow me. He half-did the crux, got gripped & down-climbed the whole thing!

Gutted I missed Matt's big splashdown following me.
I love funky wall.

Hmm...Yeah crux on jugs is fine.....toping out on slopers covered in dust and dirt ....less pleasant.

Twice, second time to try and figure out some better beta at the top. Well shaky first time round. I'm still sure my first ascent was the easiest method. Just wish I could remember it.
quiffhanger - 19/Aug/12
classic - for any dws fanatics I stumbled upon this piece of history about the route & FA from a UKC article by a guy called Toby, hope he doesn't mind ... One day I was down on a ledge sorting ropes whilst Crispin eyed possible lines around us. Then I noticed he was gone and - more puzzlingly - was not tied in. He traversed a long way leftwards above overhangs, vanished around a corner and eventually reappeared on the cliff top. Reunited later he talked through the physics of what he'd done: the cliff was steep and not that tall, the water was deep and there'd been no real danger. I listened but didn't comprehend. The route was Fathoms; years later I realised it was probably the earliest first ascent in Britain made intentionally in DWS style.

Wicked beautiful line. The top crux is doable a few different ways. Didnt really think about the fall potential when there.
