In 3 pitches. C led the first (luckily - I'd never have managed it!). I led the other two (had intended joining them but decided rope drag might be a problem). Fantastic route, a great start to our Lundy trip.

The route of the trip for me! Excellent rock, a good line, the third pitch corner looks intimidating but climbs really neatly. We just about got in to the base before the tide cut it off, which adds to the experience really!

We just about made it to the bottom of this route before the tide cut us off. Strung pitches 2 & 3 together without problem. Both P1 & 3 were awesome.

In the drizzle the starting moves were slimy, slippy and didn't enjoy it at all. After the start it did improve though.

Exquisite. The start is a bit oomphy but the last pitch is delicious and not as enertgetic as it first looks. A good choice to break into the grade multi-pitching as stances are generous and gear is solid all the way. First class route.

LukeP LCC - Lead O/S - 13/Sep/11 with rachael wragg

Westerlies blowing, big sea running and spray hanging in the air, dampening all the holds. Jammming and bridging P1 very hard, particularly as I'd forgotten my chalk bag. Led P3 (with borrowed chalk - thanks Tim!).

Good, but shame it's a bit discontinuous.
Alex Thompson - AltLd O/S - 31/Aug/11 with Ashley Mellor, Dan Lane

led P1. Quite disappointing really, certainly not 3 stars, if there was no huge ledges and the climbing was more continuous it would be much better.

bullethead - AltLd dog - 03/May/08 with just wanna climb, Matt Howe

My heart wasn't really in it, so I chilled at the base doing nothing, followed my mates up, then realised it was my turn to lead! Really impressive 3rd pitch, tiny crimps, and my jamming instantly had to get better! What a fantastic pitch.
