[Phil Beddow on Clawtrack, 2 kb]40m. The wide crack/flake system on the left side of the face is a good climb that requires a lot of large cams and/or nuts. Start at the base of a ramp that rises leftwards to the flake-line. 40m. Climb up the ramp to the flake/crack-line and follow it all the way to the top via some strenuous and committing moves. © ROCKFAX

Big gear is handy, all the way to a camalot 6. The rock is quite suspect in places so the gear itself might not be so good. The climbing is steady though.

A nice 2 star pitch climbing wise on an excellent line so borderline 3 stars. Well protected if you have a good range of cams including some big ones although I did also use some hexes including a very large one. Not commiting or that strenous IMO - quite soft for HVS. The first 15 metres were the crux for me.

Less sustained than Lunakhod, but still worth the trip.

Some big gear needed but you can get away with smaller pro if you look around. Carried a number 4 camalot up and never used it. The big round pebble I took up off the beach however was very useful. Really enjoyed this.

Made a mistake and started up Lunakhod. Half way up that traversed right across a quartz band onto Clawtrack. About 3/4 of the way up did not have anything big enough to use in the crack, so went old school and wedged a stone to put a sling round. The stone should still be there for others to use, or take out. Also pulled off a hold on the left, which hit Stephen! Traversed the top of the fin and abbed down Fay to recover the gear from a failed attempt at that.

Dave lead. A unique route! I enjoyed it. Though I didn't lead, I felt it is a soft and well-protected VS, as long as the leader carries lots of big guns.
