Landvetter** VS 4b
54m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
Another worthwhile but neglected route which follows the big groove above the right-hand side of the platform. Start at the base of the corner at low tide only.
1) 4b, 25m. Climb the big corner, with a deviation onto the right wall at the start, but mainly on the left wall above this. Belay on a ledge above a chockstone.
2) 4b, 32m. Climb the short subsidiary groove on the right, then traverse a long way left into the main groove and finish leftwards as for Blue Sky. © ROCKFAX

Forgot to take down one of the ropes. Lead P1 which was quite awkward and wet. Belayed in cave under chockstone. Massive rope faff and communication problems once Jody was at the top of P2. Yellow rope was stuck so had to take coils to take it up. Saw seal whilst belaying

Should of started at low tide - our approach made for some exciting abseil work to actually get on route.

Lead both pitches for this one. Started this and missed the belay for the second pitch so the it was really awkward spot to belay. Then decided not to go up the crux because was really scary, so baled right over the finish of Sea Mist.

Mega - what an improbable line at the grade!
Rob84 - Lead O/S - 26/May/13 with Mike Thomas, Mel

Took a high stance on the wall to start - glad we did or I'd have got wet! A bit of an expedition, fantastic.
Becky E - 2nd O/S - 05/May/13 with Graeme Hammond

Good climbing, led as one pitch from a high stance on the wall (but downclimbed to do the first section).
Graeme Hammond - Lead O/S - 05/May/13 with Becky E

Atmospheric !!! - pretty gripping with the reasonable swells but cracking climbing the whole way - 1 giant pitch, went offline a bit and added a rather airy traverse back in from the left of Haze just to spice things up. Epic route

Robbo1 - 08/Sep/12

I led the first pitch and Hugh led the second pitch. The second pitch is harder. As mentioned in other comments, we think the picture in the topo is wrong - you go right on the second pitch at the first bulge, not left. Left didn't look like VS 4b. You still have to contend with a slightly tricky bulge if you go right, to get back in the groove, but I'd say 4b+ is about right for that move. It's probably the crux of the climb. I found it tricky to get gear in the first pitch - probably I'm just not used to the rock there! - but the climbing was easy enough so it wasn't a problem. Belaying sat on the large chockstone is very cosy.

erbridger - 2nd - 24/May/12

Looks improbable from below but the holds are all there. I agree that the topo is incorrect on the 2nd pitch - it suggests a horrific move left round a hanging block at the top of the brown groove, ignore this and move up another 2-3m before making the left move above the block.

Led the 2nd pitch. Couldn't work out where to go as I think the line shown in the guide book is wrong: it doesn't match the description and the line shown looked way harder than VS. Ended up doing an alternate finish by just taking the obvious line straight up.
