24m. The deeply-recessed gully left of The Promontory gives easy scrambling to a steeper exit on the right up a short steep and slippery corner. Much used as a way down though it is easier and safer to walk round! © ROCKFAX

Did it in 3 pitches as a gear placing exercise for Rachael, she led the first two pitches to the last ledge before the top out, then I aid climbed the last part. In big boots, with rucksack, slimy/muddy rock, freezing cold and pretty windy, first part is mod/scramble top out is HVD or Severe/impossible if you are short!

My first lead climb! Complete with big boots, freezing cold weather and an awful top out.

Mod up to the final platform, VD or HVD to get out, Swing left over the edge to exit, or aid climb for those less athletic. Empty beer cans and broken bottles made this a horrible route that we won't be climbing again.

Up & then down. Although ended up going off-route and doing a harder top-out by mistake as we thought going straight up looked too much of a scramble.

Seems overgraded, just a scramble, with about 2 genuine moves at the very top. Chavs at top might add a bit of extra difficulty.

poss easiest diff on grit !! avoiding sunset watching chavs is the hard bit..
