Follow the leftward slanting grove-line a the right hand side of the cliff all the way to the roofs. Traverse right to outflank the overhangs and finish up the final wall.

Superb route... certainly doesn't feel like VS terrain and in other parts of the country would easily get HVS. Hadn't realised it had been raining all the time i was climbing under the roof - went to pull over and it was soaking wet with slimy holds... took about an hour to commit, then bought my partner a well earned pint in the Worms Head.

The route we did next to it (Hosis) is a very much more serious proposition and just no way I could lead it....HVS 5a...think it surely must be real good value at that grade

Cracking route. Climbed as a single pitch. Couple of tricky sections on the way up to the roof and the traverse under the roof is a little awkward as there aren't really any footholds, the in-situ gear is helpful. Almost traversed too far right as it's not too obvious to spot where to go up once you're there. Pull over the roof was reasonably straightforward.

a very tough VS,under the roof was quite nerve racking at that grade and the footholds that were there were very polished making it hard to commit to the moves!Also about a 3rd of the way up there is a very lose block which is very polished so i think part of the route is going to come off,it is still possible to climb avoiding the block!

Voltemands 02/Oct/11 Lead dog

This ones all in the feet. I absolutley hated the traverse at the top. You couldn't ask for better protection from the insitu thread but there is nothing, absolutely nout for your feet. The juggy/sloped ledge to hold is as polished as they come, Mr Muscle couldn't have done a better job using Mr Sheens best. It probably didn't help that I'd just pumped out on removing some stubborn gear, but it probably wouldn't have felt much better if I was 100%. Good job I have a patient belayer!

Took a big whipper on this, ended up halfway down Seth. Couldn't climb back up to finish it off, so lowered off and my second led the route. Thankfully he found the final move hard, so feel ok with the fall. Was a good safe fall to take. Happy I did it and it all worked well. Great climb, but it's high in the grade. Great gear, moves and climbing. If there was an option to give it 4 stars, I would!

Very nice route! Crux is the traverse along the overhang (as shown on the picture on the front cover of the guidebook), rather than pulling over the overhang itself. More than a little intimidating, in view of the lack of footholds! There are a few bits of tat hanging down to tempt you in to abbing off before the traverse. Felt like the upper end of VS (as opposed to the other climbs at Gower which we did which felt overgraded). Definitely worth the 3 stars.

Along with Scavenger, may favourite climb of all time. Relatively easy overhangs 200 feet above the sea are not common !
