After a suggested "Walk down the beach with our gear just to have a look about", I was hardly surprised to find myself at the base of Wreckers', in the dark, with a dying head torch, and Rad saying "Oh look where we've ended up. Might as well climb it as we're here!". So we did, and it was every bit as fun as before. I lead 2nd pitch.

Outstanding slab climbing. Started to try and do Jolly Roger AGAIN, but a late start meant climbing back from the JR first belay, to carry on up Wreckers. I lead 1st pitch to higher belay. Finished in the dark. No change there!

Have wanted to do this climb since i started but i've put it on such a pedastal that i was a little disappointed overall. Hard Severe all the way with no tech grade, didn't climb one bit of 4a or higher. Some small sections of loose rock but nothing to worry about as is the first pitch. Still a good climb overall however and really pleased to finally get on it.

victim of mathematics - AltLd O/S - 23/Apr/11 with crossdressingrodney
Ended my recent run of failure by leading the middle pitch, which was frankly horrible and scary. Still, we'd left enough gear in situ the night before that we didn't have much choice about coming bank. The bottom pitch was slightly more enjoyable in good dry conditions and Col chose a better line than I did. The top pitch was actually very nice. Finished as the sun set.
crossdressingrodney - AltLd O/S - 23/Apr/11 with victim of mathematics
Backed off from the top of the first pitch after it started raining. Boo.

Great adventure though the climbing moves are unmemorable and repetitive. Quite easy for the grade, probably only HS 4a. The crux for me was getting off the beach! That is, if you ignore the approach. I'd suggest you take a pair of pruners to make the descent less bloody. (Seriously!).

Help note: After stile and bag drop, go left to find best path down rather than down slight path in front of you. On Crag:first bit of gear is by grassy rake about 35 feet up. Look for obvious worn path through grass- its by there! Awesome climb, second pitch is very enjoyable.Do it!

Fortuitously we found a toilet brush on the boulder beach, and found it very useful on the route!.
At the top a lady was sat on the grass and started chatting to us. She had a portable oxygen cylinder which gave her just enough gas to walk slowly from her home to the top of the cliff, watch the climbers come up, chat to them, then slowly walk home again. What a girl !!
