Rockfax Description
The first of the steeper sports routes has some excellent moves but ageing bolts. Start at the diagonal crack.
Nip up the easy crack and then tackle the sustained leaning wall on good but at times hard-to-spot holds passing a good pocket on the steep bit. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
The left-hand of three bolt lines on the steep part of the cliff above the beach. Features a famous hidden finger pocket. Seems to be getting harder due to crumbling holds. Rebolted May 2012

Tried to stay absolutely direct, but failed to be able to do that! Used a great hand out to the right used by Pearl Harbour that enabled progress to the finish.... must come back and do it in one as it will defo go! Oh.. and I don't think the pocket is 'hidden'... you can see it from the ground... feels awesome when you get it, nice and sharp inside with some crystals!

with Emily

Figured out some of the moves on this, but mostly thought it seemed harder than Pearl Harbour. Tried a few methods for the long move to the pocket and couldn't make any of them work reliably. Also, may have cheated by going right just below that to some good holds that are probably on Pearl Harbour.

Breaking left at the 3rd bolt: Up a series of crimps and a long reach to the pocket makes for a solid 7a+

Good hard battle - with shouting, resting in the middle of the crux, lost feeling in fingers due to low temperature and pain when the blood rushed in again. Very happy:)

2nd bolt is a 6mm for an indoor wall - drilled straight into rock?! Someone needs to re-bolt or put staples on this route.

Really good fun. Wish I had lead for the onsight. all over once you reach the pocket. Need to remeber Wendy found and good looking undercling to clip in to the 2nd bolt. That might be key next time.

Tried it and fell at the crux (high right foot) then lowered off, belayed Dylan on it then went for a run and must have warmed up properly and Just flew through the move. Wicked!
