Nice. Couple of hard moves, fairly good gear but would've been scary to do the moves on lead.

Felt thinner than it should have. The gear is small, some of its good though. I've never used so many pieces from the 'special small stuff crab' before. Nice

led onsight in a t-shirt in december! great route the hard bit takes loads of tiny wires which are just about worth placing.
Ed morris - Lead O/S - 12/Dec/09 with arthur

Did this 7 years ago on first climbing trip, always wanted to go back. Does take v small gear but its only for confidence. Great moves, soft at grade, E1 5a-ish.

Poor protection at the crux (guess this it what makes it E1!). Entertaining watching the guys at the bottom get soaked by the incoming tide.
Swotson - Lead O/S - 10/Apr/09 with Ian Athroll

a whole lot of not much gear and a small crack for the first 10m, after that tis easy in comparison. fingery
