Great climb. Fell off at the top and slid a way down the slab with all fours on the rock - like a cat on a hot tin roof!

Lumbering Oaf 16/Sep/14 2nd

Too hot and sweaty to lead after a fall/ slide.

As others have noted, the "vertical grass" finish slightly spoils the experience; still a great route though.

Steve's lead. Good rock as expected, though smelt a bit of guano low down.

Alex Winter 10/Sep/14 2nd O/S

Really rather good.

Fabulous climbing in a superb position with quite a hairy approach and exit - leave ab rope in place ! PS, done in cool dry conditions and not much poo around at all, except just at the start of the slab itself, on the left.

Done straight after a morning of heavy rain. A bit damp but all the more exciting for that, and the fact we'd forgotten one of the climbing ropes!

A repeat but I had not led it before. Led on a single half rope after Vaughan forgot his. In fact I could have doubled it up but decided not to risk it as the guide book says it's 34m

Felt pretty steady until the crux right at the top.

Is the name supposed to ironic? Good route, shame about the guano-impregnated water running down it.

Jim Slater 19/Aug/12 2nd rpt

Route should be done at high tide.

Running wet in places, very greasy on slab and loose flakes at top made it tough for 5a I thought. Good gear though.

pebbles 16/Aug/12 2nd

vertical grass/loose boulder exit - scarmbled up very cautiously while keeping prussic on ab rope. slab itself was greasy and frictionless, with patches of green slime and guano. if this slab is Immaculate in its current condition, then I am the Virgin Mary

Great climbing and although it's covered in bird poo it doesn't detract from the climbing at all, not sure about the vertical grass escape though!

Not too immaculate at the moment. More covered in bird poo and with a few loose holds ...

Found this hard going as the start was running with water and the exit from the slab was desperate. Very relieved to make it after deciding that retreat looked an even worse prospect.

Fantastic route. To start with the ab in is intimidating. Then, the first few airy moves up the slab above a cauldron sea are heart stopping. Has a puzzling hard move to finish. Best of the grade on Lundy?

An adventure! Uncertainty as to exactly where we were, free hanging abseil, complete commitment and not the most reassuring pro - in fact lots of it lifted out once there were runners above it.
