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.

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

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 ...

A must do continuation, fantastic!
Shaw Brown - Solo - 07/Aug/10 with Loz

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.
