Intensive Scare** E2 5c
[Mike on Intensive Scare. , 2 kb]30m.

Rockfax Description
The first in a trio of fine wall climbs fortunately has a misleading name. Start beneath the large yellow-streaked curving groove. Climb up the barnacle-covered lower wall to gain the groove. Follow this to a roof then pull up above to a good hold. Finish up the short wall and blocky corner to belay in the open gully below the clifftop. © ROCKFAX

Slippy rock on such a hot day, good route despite almost greasing off the crux

Mildly concerning. Greasy start as the tide had just gone out and damp in the cracks. Gear was not particularly spaced but rarely bomber - probably ok but fiddly and not very confidence inspiring. Committing moves over the roof. Think it deserves the E3 in the CC guide, at least it did in the conditions on the day.

Top-tip: leave your ab rope on the highest bit of the platform to prevent it from getting stuck in the rocks with the incoming tide.

Gets E3 in new CC but it never is, steady E2 I reckon. Abbed in as the tide was coming in and Rob got a soaking! Great crux section but too shortlived.

Very wet but the key holds were dry. Nice reachy moves over the roof, and the rest is fun too.
