18m. Just right of “Faint White Hope” is a sculpted cleft, from which a crack on the left leads to a hanging pod in the side-wall of the tower. Climb this crack strenuously, barnacled at first, with good protection to a desperate entry into the pod. Deceptively difficult, but a span to the wall behind you and use of a helmeted head as another point of contact may assist. After getting your breath back continue more easily up the crozzly wall above the pod. A great route - physical, technical and then bold. (F.A. Nick Taylor 25.5.09, belayed on several different occasions by Lesley Burgess. Climbed ground up, with thwarted attempts over the previous 5 years due to tide encroaching and belayer going on strike, brownie-point depletion, sand movement causing large pool below the route, not to mention the fiendish crux. Initially I was convinced the grade would go at E4 6b but there is an easier way past the crux)
