Loved this route, got it clean and went up the arete, then fell in the cave on the way back.

The tide was too low to give it a proper go

KDhruev - Solo O/S - 29/Jun/14 with Alex More

Did the hard first move, struggled on the reachy one, bailed and somehow managed to reverse the first one. Should probably have tried harder...
Maddie - Solo dnf - 24/Jun/14 with Lola, Remi Richards, Dan S

Danstephens - Solo O/S - 24/Jun/14 with maddie sweetman

Probably only flashed this because Matt fell in and I wanted to show him who was boss. Was subsequently a massive girl about jumping in the sea at the end so the mastery perhaps not so long lasting.

Warm-up, a bit wet in high tide. I find it always steep and hard in the roof.
