Blue Planet** 7b+
[John in Gordon Jenkin lookalike mode., 3 kb]17m. A good route taking the large leaning wall left and above the blow-hole. The start is gained by a committing abseil from the top of the pinnacle; keep swinging in and right (looking in) to a white ledge with a staple belay. Move up the hanging rib and into the leaning crack/groove. Exit on pockets over the overhang. The hanging wall above is technical before easier moves left reach the notch on the pinnacle. Has been deep water soloed but needs a high tide. (S2) Photo page 7. © ROCKFAX

Ground up, 3rd session after 5 or 6 splashdowns. Really happy with this one, incredible route and incredible climbing on an awesome feature. Blows my mind how this doesn't get 3*. With a big spring tide its definitely only S1 but the top bits easy.

Unbelievably good climbing in an exposed and exciting position. Two days of efforts left me one move from easier climbing, will be back very soon. Buzzing still!!

Such sublime climbing, the perfect DWS, tricky sequence to a shakeout before the sick underut crux and then, just as it starts feeling a bit high, the jugs arrive for the glorious romp to the 0triumphant topout. The route saw plenty of splashdowns at high tide, with a couple of us just touching the bottom as the water level dropped a bit, but with a good high tide its good water and maybe S1 just for height
