Rockfax Description
The full-height corner in the centre of the slab provides a superb and very sustained climb that requires good bridging technique. Start at the base of the left-hand of two corners that lead up to the base of the main line.
Climb the left-hand corner easily to the overhang at the base of the corner and pull up into it. Sustained and technical moves gain an easing at mid-height. The upper section of the corner provides more great climbing. © Rockfax

Glad I'm not the only one who found this hard for the grade. There was a "must not fall" section near the start for sure. I personally didn't think it was a particularly amazing climb either - enjoyed No Sweat more.

Ed had a proper nightmare on this, poor sod. Gear wasn't too inspiring on the initial groove.

had a complete mare trying to lead this, got very scared moving off the ledge on the RHS to the good hold out left, managed to get a cam in but had a severe case of discoleg and wasn't able to regain my composure and fell off not much after, felt pretty bold moving out left and quite difficult for E1

Emotionally exhausting, vegetated and a little loose at the top. dbrooks kindly protected and then tested the move going round the overhang

The scariest 'E1' I've ever done. Really run out thin sustained climbing. Terrapin (E3) felt easier than this.

Had a bit of an epic.... Huge, unexpected rain shower soaked the rock and then waves washed a couple of us into the sea on the retreat back. Its hard swimming with a trad rack...

Mixed feelings about this climb, not a classic or a 2 star route but a good climb.

Awesome! Sections of stemming, laybacking and, for a few moves, slab climbing outside of the corner. Well deserving of three stars despite the botanical finishing corner. Felt very pushy, almost had me off at least once but managed to hold in there.

Chad123 08/Aug/10 AltLd O/S

Nice sustained, technical corner though needs a bit of cleaning in the top off, a bit too vegetated to be a classic....
