The South Ridge* D
3 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A very pleasant 'Alpine style' outing that traverses the crest of the point from its seaward end to the Compass Tower. Start at the toe of the ridge on the south side of the narrow zawn at the end of the point.
1) 25m. Follow the easy-angled stepped ridge to a ledge and belay at a boulder bridge.
2) 30m. Continue along the narrowing ridge to a high point and just beyond belay on stakes.
3) 70m. Move along the easy but exposed and slightly loose ridge to the Tower. © ROCKFAX

Not worth climbing. Really don't know why this was included in the Rockfax book which describes it as an alpine-style outing.

Nice climb, with alpine style finish On 3rd pitch, great exposure On second pitch especially soaking wet and blowing a hooly,climbed in approach boots and day sack, good to get a climb in everything else was too wet to think about
