Pendulum Chimney*** S 4b
[Guano guano everywhere and not a drop to drink..., 5 kb]

Rockfax Description
The classic of this buttress does not disappoint. The climbing is well-protected and can be climbed at highish tides during calm seas by making a straightforward abseil approach down East Gully and belaying on high ledges at the start of the first pitch.

1) 4a, 13m. Move up easily to the base of a wide crack. Take the crack that leads up left to a large belay ledge.
2) 4a, 12m. Move up to the V-chimney behind the stance and climb it before making a move right and up to a guano stained belay ledge.
3) 4a, 10m. Move right to a steep crack and climb to a belay ledge.
4) 4b, 12m. The wide crack/chimney above leads to a niche from which harder climbing accesses a ledge and belay.
5) 4a, 12m. Continue up short corners, past ledges, to the top of the cliff. © ROCKFAX

Ben Prestwich - AltLd O/S - 15/Jun/15 with Rob

Lead pitches 1, 3 & 4 (ran the two together as there were birds nesting on the route). An enjoyable climb up the chimney - not too narrow! Exiting the crag after top out was an interesting experience though.
kateharborne - AltLd O/S - 15/Jun/15 with Chris Madar

Met a nesting gull on the 3 pitch, make sure you carry chocks.

Lead all pitches, p1 and 2 combined, p3 and 4 combined. A good route but not the classic I was expecting, quite hard also. P4 chimney was just a thrutch fest. Seagulls and fulmars everywhere also.
Matt Smith - Lead O/S - 23/May/15 with Zoe Taylor

Hidden - 2nd O/S - 23/May/15

Did first pitch of the VS which was soaking wet and slimy. Traversed to escape into this. Vomited all over by nesting fulmar. Not a nice route or a great day!
mes32 - AltLd - 21/May/15 with Cameron

Led P1 of South Face Direct, but the next section was wet and slippery. Mary then led left and up to the belay at the top of P3 of Pendulum Chimney (passing a nesting fulmar en route), and we finished up the rest of the route (I led P4, Mary led P5). Fulmars do not make for pleasant climbs!

Awesome route. I'll never be able to smell stale p*%s again without thinking of this route. [A note on pro on the 1st pitch; there is a poor nut placement at the top of the wall where you move left from the crack which will protect the move up onto the ledge...probably]

An enjoyable route - I'd recommend doing it the time of year, guano wasn't a problem. The first pitch isn't well protected and woke me up. Good fun after that, with a well protected thrutch up the chimney to finish.

Alan had just led the first pitch when a wave came rolling in that blocked out the horizon! I legged it up the first pitch as it came ever closer. I got to within 10ft of the belay, with Alan just taking the rope in hand over hand, as the wave hit the rock. Massive noise and the boiling foamy water came to within a few feet of me! Just ten mins earlier we had been sat on the rocks at the bottom eating a sandwich, without a care in the world. Oh, and then we ended up finishing in the dark... What a day!
