Reached the belay ledge of New Morning in one pitch. completed in one more long pitch due to a grumpy seagull on the Diedre Sud Pitch and the worsening weather. Pitch one was awesome! Pitch 2/3 made more exciting by the rain.

Ironically got benighted. Lead pitch one (fantastic) and Matt had to dog/aid his way across as he pumped out his forearms. Lead second pitch (awesome again) and Matt couldn't go on. Matt got rescued on top rope while I waited for a replacement second (Will) to get my gear back. Top roped last pitch as we couldn't see anything. Used 2 sets of cams on the climb and could have placed more! Despite the epic, great adventure!

A true deffinition of epic for me on this one - cheers to Will, Joe for the rescue and Matt for having the patients of a saint!

Wow! What a route. Let down slightly by the finish - maybe New Morning finish would have been best option. Middle pitch is a bit chossy and line not very obvious, plus tricky belay stance. Finished up Razorbill as we'd already done Diedre Sud. First pitch is an absolute classic, cool moves around the corner and along t=most of the traverse - overhanging to my surprise! Great exposure.

1st pitch. Scary as, take loads of cams and a confident seconder. Had backed off last year.

rgd1977 - Lead O/S - 09/Jul/12
The first pitch was the probably most adventurous climbing I have done, and felt very committing with a high sea and some wet holds. Finished up Razorbill due to an angry seagull on the arete left of Diedre Sud. We weren't in the bird banned areas so it must have been quite territorial.

I lead P1 and P3, Barra did P2. It took about an hour from starting an abseil to topping out. I found P2 is slightly trickier technically, than P1, though less exposed. I imagine DWS ascent is possible. Great route, though not rivalling DoWH.

Great atmospheric climb. And the work isn't over after P1, P2 is equally good!

Fantastic first pitch and nice but easy finish up Diedre Sud.
There are two obvious abseil blocks - use the one which is on the left as you are facing the sea and abseil to the right as you are facing the rock, otherwise you will end up dangling in space under the roof above the route! Take lots of big gear - and don't take cams if you want to make the route a bit more exciting...
