gulls nesting at the bottom, no restriction, but didnt see them until we were in. one got pretty agitated swooping in on the belay, a little distracting...luckily no poo!

A very stiff rough at the grade, steep, fingery, and difficult to place good gear past the flake up to join the finishing crack. Ended up reversing to the flake, went back up, put a cam in the crack but still wasn't happy, reversed again, escaped and finished up Catch. Disappointed.
LoopyLou - Lead dnf - 27/Aug/10 with Thea Williams

Wow great climb. Blasted the lower section before I could get pumped then wobbled my way up the top crack.
