not sure what line I took- kind of ambled up left of blue sky. At the top went right on s steep slab to the top of blue skychris wyatt - Lead O/S - 21/Jul/13 with joe
Easy lead for Chris so he wandered about looking for somewhat more "interesting" stretches .

CC version of the climb, which follows almost entirely independent line to RockFax version. Crux moves equally intricate but not as wild as the adjacent moves on the RockFax line. Neither are 4c, more like hard 5a.

Completely different descriptions and lines marked on photo between Rockfax and new CC Guide. CC Guide is probably the original route, but why the heck doesn't a definitive guide include the fantastic line shown in the Rockfax Guide??!! Did Rockfax line in one pitch with small variation pulling straight over roof of cave at first stance. Loved the pull round the left of the top roof in very airy barn-door position, defo 5a not 4c, maybe even E1!

On 2nd pitch, 25' of scrambling, then straight up some brownish rock, exposed step out right to pull to the top. Poss 5a variation. Anyway, basically, didn't look at guide book too closely and got lost! Chris Craggs' description sounds alot like it.

Good route - didn't read guide properly and mistook for Blue Sky. Lead p2 fairly straight forward climbing. Great move along the flake then steep finish

Second pitch seemed harder than 4c to me, must have missed some holds, bold lead too.

Top pitch only, had intended to do Blue Sky, but the tide was in and the sea was very rough and we ended up taking what looked the easiest line

E1 4c, 5b by the line we did. Left of that shown in RF.
P1) 22m. Climb right to the arete then leftwards up the lovely groove to a great stance (3m higher than shown in the guide).
P2) 28m. Step left and climb the straightforward rugged face to the base of a smooth groove. Enter this with difficulty and climb it awkwardly (poor gear) to easier ground.
Chris Craggs - 2nd - 22/Aug/09 with Colin Binks
Good route - steady leader is useful as its quite exposed
