8 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A fabulous route that is packed with plenty of interesting pitches and spectacular situations. The climb also benefits from being well above the clutches of the tide during calm and moderate seas. Some of the pitches are serious for both leader and second and care is needed with protection. Start at a wide crack at the base of the buttress.
1) 16m. Climb the wide crack and its continuation above a wide break to a large ledge. Belay at its back, below a corner-crack.
2) 9m. The 'Elbow Crack'. Climb the fine, well-protected corner-crack to a belay next to a tilted block that forms a slab.
3) 15m. Climb the centre of the slab to its top. Drop down, cross a wide gap and move up to belay below a short wall with a crack in it.
4) 6m. Climb the short wall via cracks to a good ledge and belay.
5) 12m. Move right to the base of a wide chimney and bridge up this until it is possible to transfer to the landward wall of the chimney. Climb the wall until a final pull up right gains a good belay.
6) 10m. Move down and across to a wall that must be traversed right via a short but precarious move into the base of a large gully and belay.
7) 10m. Traverse right again around a rib to a ledge and then climb the short steep cracks to another good ledge and belay below a lichen-covered wall - 'The Green Face'.
8) 7m. 'The Green Face'. Climb the steep lichen-covered wall above the stance to the top via a left-trending weakness. A tough pitch at the grade. © Rockfax

I led 2, 4, 6 and 8 A led the others. Really good climb, a bit of everything. Pitch 2 would probably get HS in the Peak and the top pitch would get Severe. Need to go back and lead the odd pitches and maybe do the jump.

Solo: mixed techniques. Was wondering whether or not to do this as I'd read it was tough for grade. Met a group on Bosigran ridge earlier in the day who said it was similar: They lied! Very hard for VD. Used a big hex and slack rope to protect elbow crack on pitch 2 as it was really tricky. Arrived at the jump / traverse on pitch 6 and decided both were really nasty. Realised you could climb up left to get to top so did this and set up rope at top. Scrambled back down and top rope soloed the exposed traverse. Realised my rope was not positioned correctly to climb the final green face pitch so climbed the corner crack just before and left of green face to top - a good easier alternative I discovered. Repositioned rope for green face. Ab'd off and top rope soloed the last 2 pitches. Convoluted way of doing it but pleased it worked out ok. A great route but not to be underestimated!

Led 2nd, 4th, 6th, 7th, and 8th pitches (7+8 in one pitch). Did _not_ do the pitch 6 jump :-) 2nd & 8th pitches are definitely 4a, and the delicate traverse on pitch 6 is a big ask for VDiff climbers. Route is rambly, but what do you expect for a 8 pitch VDiff. Very entertaining and highly recommended for those wanting a amusing outing.
