30m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
The central route on the wall provides a magnificent challenge. Get yourself onto a tiny ledge, just left of the big cave, either from below or above; or start from lower at low tide.
1) 6a, 15m. Climb up left from the ledge to a small roof. Make a very hard move around this to a tiring undercut above. Pull up left (also hard) into another groove then climb up over the overlaps to reach a good stance at the base of a steep corner.
2) 5c, 15m. Climb the corner then traverse left to a monster thread on the very nose of the buttress (you'll see what I mean when you get there!). Step left and climb the wall to the top. © Rockfax

First pitch felt hard an greasy, trashed me! Damn good effort by Mike. Second was just class, should have led it really but first just took me down.

Felt OK for E4 - never too hard with good, but spaced gear. Would be hard if greasy!
