Right Angle*** HS 4b
[putting my new trad leading skills to practice on right angle, 3 kb]

Rockfax Description
A true classic of its grade, which follows an almost unbelievable path into, and out of territory that looks as though it should be reserved for far more extreme climbs. Start on ledges level with an orange, lichen-covered ledge (this is the belay ledge at the end of the first pitch) as viewed from the easy, rocky-ground that runs down the right side of the zawn. Photo on page 41..
1) 13m. Traverse horizontally rightwards past a bay to a good stance on the orange ledge..
2) 4b, 22m. Continue the traverse rightwards for a further 12m, then descend the steep wall and corner to a point just above the high-water mark. Move right to a stance and belay. This pitch requires careful route-finding, and is much trickier if damp..
2a) 4b, 18m. An inferior variation on the second pitch continues the traverse, below a long, narrow overhang, all the way to meet the base of the corner above the cave, and a restricted stance. This variation is less affected by sea conditions..
3) 4a, 38m. Take the wall above the stance to meet the corner at the overhang. Follow the corner in a breathtaking position, all the way to the top. © ROCKFAX

most adventurous route yet.
crimpylewis - 2nd - 30/Jul/14

Jon led P1 and P3, I led P2 (after Rich soloed it). P3 is fantastic, can't be many better at the grade. Awkward move on the downclimb of P2, and the belay wasn't the best, so I was hoping Jon wouldn't fall and pull us both into the sea. I also worked out that backclipping on downclimbs will better protect the second, and doesn't affect the leader. Note to self: be careful to pull the ropes gently on traverses, the gear does seem to fall out more easily.

Led p2 - the right angle, learnt important lesson about trusting that the holds *will* be there after having a wobble! Top pitch long and brilliant too.
oddtoast - AltLd - 09/Jul/14 with Gav

Truly wonderful, probably the best route I have ever done. I lead P1 and P3. P1, although ungraded, is very intimidating. P2 is the crux one and it requires very careful ropework, it was made a little more exciting as the waves crashed over me and soaked all the key holds. P3 is a joy. Great memories!
Hamish777 - AltLd O/S - 05/Jul/14 with Andrea

Def felt like VS, both lead and second need to be competent in the HS/VS grade to do this route. We climbed it on a lovely sunny day in the summer and the crux of P2 got soaked with high waves. Thankfully things dried quite quickly. Would be incredibly committing in other conditions if the rock wasn't quick drying and the waves were higher. Lovely though and mostly straightforward climbing.
andrea83 - AltLd O/S - 05/Jul/14 with Hamish

Hidden - AltLd O/S - 05/Jul/14

An excellent couple of hours. Super easy for the leader, but requires constant thought about safety for the second. P1 was in some ways my favorite; a complete path heading out in to amazing territory. P2 was fine for the most part, but I forgot to downclimb far enough, and traversed at half height between the horizontal break and the belay ledge. This involved moves on a pocket and a slot, not much for feet, and a sweaty slither on to the stance; definitely not HS 4b. I did not envy the second, and despite their success at following, regret that I didn't do a better job of protecting them. Good belay anchors high up. P3 was pretty special; a 100ft ladder in an incredible setting. We started only about 2 hours after high tide in a lowish sea, and had no wave dramas. Go and do it!

First time doing the full route rather than the high traverse. Swung on a ballnut following downwards on p2. There is a peg apparently at the top of the descent. Next time ill clip it and sacrifice a carabiner to protect the second.
perranman - AltLd - 30/May/13 with James berwick

Dave lead the first pitch, I lead the second and third. Thought the traverse from the corner to the second belay ledge was hard. Perhaps should have gone lower, the rockfax guide does say descend to the high tide mark. Dave took a small fall/swing at that point. The corner/slab is delightful, but I did not think as hard as the last pitch of the second route. The definitive guide and rockfax seem to disagree on the grades.

jakenichol - Lead rpt - 19/May/13 with Kayleigh Tremaine

Astral Stroll looked wet so decided to check out Gurnard's Head and got on this on the heels of another two IM teams, though they took the high traverse line. I led the middle pitch and took the low belay as the sea was fairly calm. The down climb is quite hard for a few moves. Mostly easy moves and generally good gear but should be VS really for the commitment. A brilliant line and a true classic. With Viktor from Sweden on the BMC international meet. Then went and did Astrall Stroll after all! Will be back for Behemoth and Mastadon (they were wet).
Misha - AltLd O/S - 17/May/13 with Viktor

On the BMC I.M. Really wild seas, which sounded like a cannon firing every time waves crashed into the zawn. Utterly amazing climb! Consequently did the traverse just below the overhang to reach the hanging belay at the start of the corner.

Brilliant Climb. Found the moves onto the 2nd belay quite interesting
lucyh - 2nd - 29/Sep/12 with James Pomeroy

What a great position, climbing down to the bottom of the zawn and back to the top. Highly recommended. Belay at the end of P2 is not great, but something can be arrange with small wires.

I led P2 - I traversed across to the top of the little corner and then did the whole downclimb vertically, next to no holds in places so smeared my way down. Definitely easier to downclimb as far as possible BEFORE entering the bottom of the corner and finishing the downclimb below it. I started on P3 just after sundown, cracking route!

Utterly brilliant. I led pitch 1 which is easy but massively exposed, and the final long corner. Carmen led the descent pitch so in effect I was "leading" it, and duly threw a wobbler near the bottom where it gets hard and you can't see any more footholds. Somewhere near the top of my "all time favourites".

I braved the rest of the pitch and got royally soaked by a big wave just before reaching the belay! Last moves to the belay ledge on suddenly gopping wet holds were "fun". I led P3 as well.

Intimidating climbing but brilliant! Got jammed ropes, tears and finishing the 2nd pitch off belay. All good fun. Last pitch is 4a but the descending corner is polished and, if you cross to the stance to early, is high end 4b. Stay on the outside when descending and go low, the rest can then be enjoyed.

Nice traverse. Down-climbing the crack was interesting with the sea below. Delightful second pitch.

Wasn't completely sure of the best line for pitch 3 - ended up exiting the descending corner and making a descending traverse of the wall on small holds.

fantastic climb. Done in worsening weather and waves crashing over Yoko as I led the corner pitch.

Fantastic climb, the sea was a bit rough so it was a bit hair raising. Really atmospheric, I led the first and third pitch.

The climbing wasn't too bad but the belays scared me senseless. Feels (and is) very committing for both leader and second.
