Quality Street** V+ 4a
[Quality Street (VS 4c), 4 kb]80m. A fine traverse under the headland of Berry Head. It should not really be described as a sea level traverse since the original way finishes some 30 metres above the sea - soloists beware! It links Berry Head Quarry with the Coastguard Cliffs and is usually done R to L. It is possible at any state of the tide provided there is no swell. At www.javu.co.uk it is accurately described IMO as a VS 4c roped jaunt whilst a solo close to sea level is about 5c.

Probably got lost and didn't go through the cave. Fell off halfway - go higher next time.

a little more involved the solo traverse start on the barnacles than expected. However decent fun once it gets going. Solo'd the last bit with a scary step across the cave.
Stanners - Lead O/S - 14/Jun/15 with Andy G

Not sure were this route went, descended to beneath the Crystal corner and started to traverse round to a rib on barnacles, after 10m or so to another undercut corner, no gear or stance! Possibly to low? God knows

We did quite a low level traverse at low tide, 4c at a push... Didnt end up 30m up either. Was nice to make up the route roughly on the way, some tricky moves
