340m. DWS F6a+. Anyone wish to volunteer an S grade? As a trad route it warrants E2 5b or VII. Section 2 takes you through the Blue Grotto and heads south to Cradle Rock Buttress.

An excellent bit of climbing as it looks unlikely! Avoid low tide as it is reasonably high and the water appears shallow.

L-R. The traverse in and bridge across look so unlikely at the grade. Brilliant.

Dripping with condensation - heroically fought through - 6b+ today?

End of a long day of climbing, gave up just before the high bit. Not a great choice at low spring tide as very shallow in places.....

Awesome - took a higher line on than previous ascent - much nice and stayed dry via the awesome Blue Grotto finish.

Jo got as far as the high move over the chimney before calling it a day.

Repeat ascent, Awesome, lots of water, safe but a lot harder than with less water.

Excellent DWS. Fell 3 times over all and could not complete blue grotto pitch as I was horrifically pumped by then.

Very slimy at one point and less scary than last time!

fell off pumped out on a super high bit and felt the bottom on the fall, classic though ...

Great continuation, again felt quite tough for 6a+ but then I was super pumped from the first section....the bit crossing the back of the cave is sweet and a little high! Technical after that too....

A good adventure, but not as good as the first pitch. I think we missed the ending part. Finished at the zorn as it took much longer than expected.
