Rockfax Description
The easiest route up the face gives a popular and unusual excursion.
1) 5b, 25m. As for Mythical Monster to its step right from the open groove. Continue traversing rightwards beneath a bulge to reach a ledge.
2) 5b, 30m. Move right across a slab then climb up to a couple of holes keeping just left of some ledges. Pull out of these and climb the wall above, passing some more holes, to the top. © Rockfax

Went down to the leap to take advantage of super low tides and try The Ducking Stool. Looked impossible - couldn't even see a line - so wimped out up this in the hope of figuring it out from above (it still didn't make sense). Fun little adventure - mostly VS ledge shuffling with a couple harder sections.

led both pitches. Had to rush pitch one due to the incoming tide, it comes in FAST.

Lead first pitch, would be three star if it had a more distinct line, well protected and lots of moves.
