done as one pitch. used 120cm sling on fixed cam under roof above sentry box- no issues with rope drag.
Dave Thompson - Lead - 03/Jun/14 with Mark Lee
Tried to link as one pitch. Got scared swinging onto the arete so went back to belay ledge and brought JP up. Gave it another go. Got scared. Got sandy hands. Got over the roof! The crux is the scary sand covered move under the first roof. the roofs themselves are good.

adam 24 - AltLd O/S - 04/May/14 with Stuart Johnston
Intended to do it in one pitch, got to the first roof, but could not arrange the gear I'd be happy with to commit to the step onto the arete. Got lowered back to the sentry box and brought Graham up for moral support. Went up again, this time with a bit more resolve. All good, but traversed too far left and had to abandon a wire and a sling to be able to reverse back to under the crux. From there on all went fine, just a few strenuous pulls on good holds. Not my best performance.

Fell after clipping the peg past the crux, too pumped. The crux section is too sandy. (Also, don't climb trad with new shoes till they soften)

P2. Sandy. Moves to the arete felt insecure because of the sand on all the holds. Found good small gear in the roof (by the rusted peg), then you can reach through to a good (looking) peg. Enjoyable crux moves. Second crux was fun and well-protected too. An enjoyable steep route. Well done to Colin for P1 with one piece of gear :)
ChrisBrooke - AltLd O/S - 02/Jun/13 with Colin Peck, Nadir Khan
Led P2 after backing off two years ago. Move left under the roof still feels committing.

Beta warning - there is a lot of gear under the roof but you need to extend it massively to get around the roof. the break is sandy and damp and although the move onto the arete is quite easy it is insecure. i slipped trying to back climb to a rest having placed gear. i ended up lobbing about 6m to land below the belayer and just missing the ledge. felt like a lucky escape. having a really big cam would help avoid this risk

Had a good faff moving onto the arete once i got there and discovered a lack of gear and slightly damp, sandy holds. Once i committed tho it was easier than i thought and had satisfying exposure.

Had been intimidated by this route for years for no good reason. Not particularly hard for Swanage E1 (felt easier than The Spook) and pretty safe on whole with great exposure on the steep bits. I received a good tip to rack a friend 4 to back up the first (and worst) of the three pegs without which the sandy traverse under main roof would be quite scary. 2 pegs above in reasonable condition, a decent breather then an easier-than-expected juggy romp through the upper bulge. Pitch 1 is one to let your mate lead - thanks Andy!

Lead first pitch - not really an E1 pitch, but a pleasant warm-up. Second pitch was tricky approaching the crux. Would recommend replacement of the peg underneath the roof. Failed to remove David's cam from the roof and the RP next to the peg. David later abseiled down to retrieve the gear but had to abandon the cam.
