It's possible to access the recess under the slab at high tide, with a bit of careful down-climbing and traversing.
James led as a single pitch. Nice line. Hard bouldery first move. Then eases up.
did 5a alternate start, I think

Fab route in an amazing location, loads of gear and very pleasant moves.
Had a long wait for it. Great though

A bit disappointed after all the hype. Nice climbing but probably only one move low down that merits anything more than 4c.
Amazing line! A few moves at the bottom of the crack seemed hard (harder than Asafoetida) with only a couple of runners to the side, but quickly eases.

Pretty thin at the bottom, and doesnt dry quickly either. The approach down the buttress was good fun and possible at high tide. Good lead by Ed.
|Nick Russell||20/Sep/13||Lead O/S||
Pretty sure I did the start as per description. A bit of a tricky move low down then it just keeps getting easier up the slab. Fantastic climbing and position.

Got lost in the wrong crack after the start!
Really nice line, shame that alot of it is shared with diamond solitare.

|Justin Shiels||20/Aug/13||Lead O/S||
I traversed to the main crack via a 5a high-traverse line (a couple of metres above the bottom). Great route.
|Julian Prieto||22/Sep/12||2nd O/S|
Nicely varied, the overhang was possibly the crux, followed by enjoyable padding up the crack. Didn't think any of it was 5b tho.
Rob T, Ed
Stuck a piece of gear in the corner at the start of the slightly damp slab as it seemed very run out (above a horrible landing), straightforward otherwise, really nice climbing.

Speed accent on the way to catch the ferry probably enhanced the experience, last climb of the holiday :)

Did i go the right way, or didn't i go the right way? who cares, i enjoyed it!
felt quite nervous about this one - looks quite intimidating from the bottom. Only one slightly tricky move low down though. Felt more relaxed after that. Good climbing plenty of gear - amazing crag.

From Diamond Solitaire
With the 5a start
|Chris Sansum||05/Aug/11||Lead O/S||
Nice route. Felt about VS 5a to me, but might have built up some extra fitness after a few days' climbing.
|Graham Booth||?/Aug/11||Lead O/S|
Baffled by guidebook description and first 10 metres of this route. Does it really go over the overhang as for Cullinan???
|victim of mathematics||11/Sep/10||Lead O/S||
Via 5a start as the original one was wet. Nice climbing on a good line.
flared and greasy at the start but fantastic moves after that. good introduction to lundy!

|irish paul||30/May/10||Lead O/S||
Opted for 5a start. Dropped gear but retrieved it!
|Andy Clarke||09/Sep/09||Lead O/S||
Great climbing in a superb position. Definitely worth doing the 5b start, which is easy for the grade, with solid gear, and makes for a dramatic emergence onto the slab.
|Mark Warnett||?/Sep/09||Lead O/S||
1st Lundy route
... but took the start of Diamond Solitaire through the cave to escape from sea-level. Very slippery indeed.

An interesting baptism into lundy west coast climbing. Moved in from left to avoid total dunking

Nice route, but a bit unbalanced with all the hard moves in the first 10m.

Well named; incredible rock quality. Hard move stepping right between the cracks.
Liked it so much repeated it in Sep '95
