[Escaping from the Cormorant's Bill, 3 kb]A memorable climb of sustained interest that follows the appealing corner just right of the tip of the promontory. Start on high ledges below a large ledge at the base of the corner itself. Photo on page 233. 26m. Mantleshelf onto the large ledge below the corner. Climb the sustained corner via jamming and bridging to an easing below an overhang. Pass the overhang with a big pull on good holds out to the left and finish more easily. Belay on the tip of the promontory. Scramble off along the crest of the promontory. © ROCKFAX

Hidden - Lead - 28/May/14

Have previously led, so not a little disappointed to have dogged the shit out of it today. Very sweaty, bit of a bitch, definitely E1.
Tom Last - 2nd dog - May/14 with Rich Hudson

Hidden - Lead O/S - 15/May/13

Great route, deserves its stars and well protected. Absolutely boxed at the overhang, missed a foothold and had to rest. Quality climb.
