Outstanding, but if you told me it was E2, I could believe that - But I did it in one pitch.. Thought the guide description could do with a bit of tweaking. Start heading up from belay ledge. Exit the top of the niche before travesing left. Consider the wire on it as crag swag.

Variation with 4c traverse for first pitch.

Led P1 on the 4c variation to beat high tide. Patrick backed off P2 as he had looked at the E3 variation and thought that was the 5b. Hauled ourselves up the graunchy chimney of Hyperspace Bypass.

Excellent
Nick Wallis - AltLd - Sep/12 with Martin Cooper

Led P2. Spectacular climbing, the final traverse is really out there.
Jim Slater - AltLd O/S - 22/Aug/12 with Graeme

Amazing route! Had to lead pitch 1 like a bat out of hell as the ledge was in danger of being washed and was only moments after Jim vacated. Two amazing pitches and lots of whooping on the jugs on the 2nd pitch in particular :)
Graeme Hammond - AltLd O/S - 22/Aug/12 with Jim

This is what Lundy was about! Climbing out of the zawn abyss into glorious sun! Lead the second pitch. Much easier than the first, allowing you to fully soak up the ridiculous position. Best route of the trip.

Took the wrong ab line & ended up dangling free above the sea. A pair of passing sea kayakers suggested I stand either foot astride their 2 craft but i knew that this could only result in a soggy experience. Fortunately, I was able to so swing tot he opposite side of the zawn to solo out "An audience with seals" and retry the ab approach! I Led p1, IM p2
