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

Missed the first 2 pitches. First corner was wave washed and soaked. Didn't like the look of it in those conditions so we did the first pitch of south face direct and traversed in left. Greasy all the way with the mist but this just added to the atmosphere of a classic chimney.

Rob Seymour 25/Sep AltLd O/S

Abseiled into boiling sea and, without the guide, starting up the first pitch to avoid getting more wet, and thinking we were on South Face Direct. First couple of pitches were magic, and we finished up Neptune.

Atmospheric: sea chasing in had us at a gallop up slightly harder direct start until, ay up, seagulls and chicks and fish bones and guano guano everywhere. Yet one of the finest routes I've ever experienced.

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!
