Rockfax Description
One of the best VSs in Devon. Start at the continuous crack-system just left of the corner of Urizen.
Follow the long, well-protected and sustained crack-system without deviation, but lots of grinning. © Rockfax

Super fun but really tough footwork. Crack and slab climbing are not my forte

danbirkby 10/Oct Lead O/S

Began with a hairy scramble in at "low" tide. Led a pitch to get to the starting ledge with the waves crashing around Gordon's wet feet. Typical. Lovely crack climbing with plenty of gear and places to rest. Great introduction to Devon sea cliffs.

I did this sometime in the early '80s and thought it was a challenge then, it still is! No praticularly hard moves, though in the middle where the crack becomes too thin to use is the most interesting! It did keep making me think all the way though; had to get my feet sorted out.

Excellent climbing. Top end VS, in fact harder than some HVSs that I've done. Thought Holly would be ok on this as it's on a slab but she couldn't do the crux (I suspect she didn't trust the small smeary holds), so had to pull her up (she pulled on one rope while I took in the other - have never had to do that before but it worked well). Otherwise she did it fine if a bit slowly, though she stuggled with the final jamming crack.
