[steven half way up, 3 kb]10m. This splendid route provided the original mould for the #4 rock nut, make sure you take one! Start on the arete just right of the big undercut on Cornflake Walls. Climb on a series of small, but adequate, cracks to half-height. The Stegosaurus' spinal plates make for good pro and even better holds on the next part of this great climb, which is over far too soon. Scramble up the sandy ramp and belay on stakes. Si Lynch 2009.

really nice route, felt good to get the sling around the spike.
tradmonkey - Lead O/S - 03/Jun/11 with nicky

A nice route, and well protected throughout. Possibly HS 4a for the intimidation factor. The hardest bit is leaving the ground (I assume you're not meant to traverse in from the corner) but this is over quickly.

An exciting lead! The sea was up to the bottom of the route and my belayer Mel took a hanging belay in the chimney of Blockbuster with the ropes over her knees so I could lead the route as I didn't want to leave it for another day. A fun route (bit easy for the grade though)

Interesting route when you have the sea lapping at your feet whilst belaying ;-)
