[Eyeing up Ships that Pass in the Night (E4), 2 kb]45m, 2 pitches. The right arete of the pillar gives an elegant experience in head climbing which just merits the grade. 1) 6a, 20m. Climb the right-hand side of the arete until it is possible to pull around onto its left. Tip-toe up this side past a small roof (old peg). Move up past a small wire to a square hold, then climb the dinky groove above with some excitement. 2) 5b, 25m. Climb the shallow groove behind the belay to the next ledge, then move left into Trevallen Pillar. Finish up this. © ROCKFAX

So hot!! Sweat dripping in my eyes.
Ed Booth - Lead O/S - 25/Jul/14 with Anna Pugh

Bit harder & more exciting than I was expecting. Tricky gear.
quiffhanger - Lead O/S - 21/Apr/14

Bottom end E5 if you have a good head above gear, but really good climbing. The 6a bit comes right at the start, feels hard especially when wet and slippery from the tide! The moves round the arete are awesome, and the sequence from there to the top is just run-out enough to give a little buzz.
Joughton - Lead O/S - 27/Aug/13

Fairly easy apart from the tricky but well protected long reach crux near the top of the arete. Felt E4. Did it in 1 rather than 2 pitches and finished up the top groove to the right of trevallen pillar instead of traversing left to finish up that. Seemed an obvious, independent way to finish the route and the ropes are completely straight from ground to top with that finish, so no rope drag
tim newton - Lead O/S - 24/Aug/13 with jon stewart

First E5 onsight! There is a wobbly jug at the start which almost threw me off. The runout section is superb.

Sweet top section, felt well bold! Bottom section was still wet and really slippy from tide - bit dodgy, but fantastic technical (easy) climbing on the left side of the arete, and an exposed crux, quite a big reach but not too desperate
