Gimcrack* VS 4b
[Doh, read the guide Lukey !, 3 kb]

Rockfax Description
One of the more amenable, but difficult-to-access climbs on this section of the Boulder Ruckle. Start at a low-angled section of the cliff that stands proud of the wall.
1) 4a, 17m. Follow the rib for 7m and move left to a corner. Climb the corner to a large ledge below a roof and belay.
2) 4b, 22m. Pull over the overhang and climb a groove to a large ledge. Finish up a corner on the left. © ROCKFAX

UKC Logbook Description
30 metres east of The Planet
1. 4a. Up rib for 6m, traverse L to corner, and up it to large ledge under roof.
2. 4b. Over overhang, follow groove to large ledge. Short corner on L leads to stake belay by season-restriction boundary post.

Nice sunny winters day. Would have been much better if some theaving scam had not stole my trainers when i got back to the top.

We ended up going up the right hand side of the slab on pitch one and then traversing across under the roof (considerably harder). Next time check the guide book Lukey ;-)

Epic. Abbed down into the incoming tide, scambled to a ledge at the back of the cliff boxed in with a large overhang above us and wondered what to do. Not able to cross safely to the start of the route, Paul led off traversing up and round the side and then away out of sight upwards. I stood on my ledge belaying getting wetter as the waves got higher and waited. Eventually there was the signalled tug on the ropes and I could climb - rescued from a watery end.
