Rockfax Description
A long line that has a very traditional feel to it, and is a little dirty in places. Start at the toe of the ramp at the end of a seawater-filled trench.
1) 20m. Climb the intimidating right-trending ramp and crack to a good ledge and spike belay at its right-hand end (care is needed to protect the second on this pitch).
2) 12m. Ascend the large flake rightwards to its top and then work up the slab above it to a stance next to a large crack/corner.
3) 14m. Move right to a crack and climb it to a break. Step right to another wider crack and climb its left wall to a ledge and belay on blocks.
4) 10m. Climb a short crack to a horizontal break, traverse left to a ledge and finish up the corner-crack above it. © Rockfax

Sunny and hot. Lead all 4 pitches, navigation on pitch 2 and 3 tricky. Surprisingly challenging for a VDiff, felt more like a severe. Pitch 3&4 are dirty (but dry)

I led the first and last pitch. The first pitch was a bit wet which was more interesting since I was climbing in trainers... Interesting slabby hand traverse on the final pitch.

Didn't take enough gear and went off route. Bit of a 'mare. Lesson learnt: Climb multipitch with more snap gates, screwgates or quickdraws!

Lead all pitches. Went off route after pitch 2 and went straight up rather than right and up the slap, had a technical overhanging move which was harder than VDiff, great fun though.

P1 & P3. P1 & P2 very nice. P3 a bit horrible and mossy. No feet hand traverse seemed a bit stiff for V Diff. Lovely place and weather though.

First pitch is brilliant. Can be tough for the second, if the leader isn't thoughtful with the protection. Upper pitches are not obvious, but worth it for the first pitch...

The first pitch is in a spectacular position, giving vdiff access to E grade territory. Lovely climb in perfect sunshine.

Challenging route finding through plants, lichen and guano. Intimidating but feasible final pitch with hand-traverse into mantel-shelf onto guano covered ledge. Had to wash hands afterwards but all good fun.
