Rockfax Description
A stunning line and one of West Penwith's best pitches. Start just right of the arete.
Move up and left to a peg. Make gymnastic moves past the peg and up the wall to a break and thin flake on the right. Pull up and left past a thin crack to a reasonable horizontal break, from where another move brings better holds and a rest. Move right and climb the wall on great holds to a short corner and finish up this. © Rockfax

amazing to be on this route. intimidating though having just seen burton take quite a whipper!! climbed on his gear to first break then made a couple of moves past the higher break before getting gear in. not sure a fall from there would have gone well.

Got terminal pump half way up and had a rest on the gear. Felt really sustained for E4, but Jon found a good rest that I missed, so maybe it's not as hard as it seemed. Even having not done it clean it was still one of the best pitches of climbing I've ever been on.

Steep, steep, steep! And the peg is no longer there. Good climbing!

Direct start(peg has gone, no change to grade). Thought top end E4 overall.

The force was not with me today, disappointing lack of commitment under pressure.
