[Mun; Caprice, VS 4c; Doyden Point, 2 kb]A perfect introduction to the delights of the cliff and a very worthwhile goal in its own right. Start at the upper end of the ramp below a slab with some quartz patches. Photo opposite. 27m. Move up onto the slab and go left to a small corner. At the top of the small corner step out left onto the slab and climb the slim diagonal crack left, stepping up above it midway, to finish at a ledge around the arete. © ROCKFAX

pretty wild, with waves crashing in full force, stopping just short of the top of the belay ramp and rain showers lashing the wall
msoldn - Lead O/S - 13/Aug/11 with Rory

Scary sea booming and splashing all around. Chased up the ramp by waves a couple of times while belaying Mike. Awesome stuff.

Very pleasant.
victim of mathematics - 2nd O/S - 24/Apr/11 with crossdressingrodney

Not well protected in the lower part, but good holds throughout.

Very nice little route! Bewarned there is a fulmar in residence just above the route under the loose looking blocks at the top of the crag. This does not really affect Caprice but would potentially result in a smelly experience if you are attempting 'The shrink'.
