Climbed in 6 pitches. We had to make a 1st belay only 10m off the ground as the tide was getting close to the cliff. Two more pitches took us to beneath the centre of the ramp. The final ground to gain the left-hand side of the ramp was very unstable. The fourth pitch was made by the cave 1/3 of the way up the ramp with another belay close to the top of the ramp. The climbing on the ramp was mentally very taxing due to many of the warthog placements not being as strong as ideal. This combined with a couple of sections of majorly unstable chalk meant I needed to keep my wits and take care. The ramp took over 7 hours to climb the 45m as a consequence and it was 11.30pm by the time we reached the top. Exillerating.

Seconded Lee up. The situation on the ramp/top pitch is sensational. Topped out close to midnight. Loose chalk, entire sections peeling away.
