[The Rising Tide, St. Govans, 2 kb]An excellent and underrated route which tackles the smooth white wall directly by some surprisingly amenable climbing. Start as for Flight Path and climb the wall with a hard move to gain a curving overlap at half-height (reasonable gear and two stainless pegs). Move left then continue up the easier but scarier upper wall trending left to finish up The Arrow. The original start was slightly to the right but is a bit artificial. © ROCKFAX

Last route of the weekend after coaching Viki all weekend. Had a minor epic with an angry seagull on the crux, and added pressure of incoming tide. Found no stainless pegs, but found a couple of very rusty one not worth clipping. Loads on small gear all the way. Steady at E4. Good route

An excellent climb and pretty reasonable for the grade. Pulled over the top to see Wendy strolling up with the picnic. Coupled with introducing Ollie to some very good VS's/HVS's this made for a great day's climbing.

Harder and more pumpy than I anticipated! It doesn't look very steep but certainly felt it. Great climbing, definitely underrated. We went with the name and did it above a rising tide but started on a ledge just above the high tide mark to avoid any mishaps!

Excellent route, nice and commiting. Stick to the line and don't jib-out into the Arrow. It all comes good
