[JA in front of "his" climb, 3 kb]27m. From Duckpool car park boulder hop to the seaward face of Steeple point. Route starts on the RH side of the large overhang with a wavy horizontal overlap/crack. Climb up beneath the overhang and traverse delicately left to gain the overhanging niche at the extreme left hand side of the over hang. Move up to gain the flake/crack line and continue to the top. Well protected & good rock once the you start on the headwall. Sustained and pumpy, high in the grade.

First onsite lead of this route? A meaty pitch. Delicate traverse under the overhang, then committing moves through the overhang and subsequent two bulges. Finishing move to gain the top out not to be underestimated. 5b, lots of pro on the head wall, but no rests, just degrees of strength ebbing away. Top stuff
