Exceptional, worthy of the 4 stars it gets.
Callum_Johnson - 2nd O/S - 03/Jul/13 with Uisdean

Best route iv'e done on NE sea cliffs. Sustained with as much gear as you need. Very greasy at bottom (chalked first holds and left them for 30 mins!).

Maybe not 4 stars, very safe and very sustained. Found the initial move a bit sketchy due to a slight greasyness to the rock. Pumped by the good rest but managed to get enough back for the final crack. Just!

The thunder started just as I was getting ready. The rain started as I pulled on. The crag was awash by mid height. Got quite wet.Quite enjoyed the climbing all the same.

ben led to 1/2 way and took a fine fall after deciding it wasn't hard enough and wandered onto the E4. Danimal pulled ropes and led through

The crack was still damp despite the other routes being dry. Not sure this is worth **** as given in NEO. Thought The Essential and Coming Up Roses were better lines.
