Really low tide so had to stay low .. unable to make move in cave (not sure how the move went .. no way the route I was on was a 5a though). Also was wearing booties rather than rock boots .. made not the slightest bit of difference as the climbing was either very easy or hard work on your arms/fingers.

3 soakings! low level options attempted, felt like 6B moves but with wet feet. Excellent fun.

Low tide, stayed low, at least 2 bits of 5b (5c?) on the steep bits. Did it in both directions.

6b+ version
thomasadixon - Solo O/S - 29/Jun/08

My first DWS route. Start was a bit of a sharp jaggedy rock solo rather than a deep water solo, as you would have hit quite a lot if you'd come off, mainly due to the quite low tide level. Made it nearly all the way, then bottled it after running out of steam on the overhanging 6b+ crux section - not used to this falling off malarky, being a trad climber! Great fun though. Water wasn't too cold, surprisingly, although the sea was a bit choppy at times!
Chris Sansum - Solo dnf - 29/Jun/08

Did it last week and sandbagged Chester on it this week. He did it though, a great effort on the 6b+ version.
Tom Last - Solo rpt - 23/Jun/08 with Chester

6b+ version. Great route, angry seagulls around by 'TJandtheRW', so would avoid those routes for now...
