P2. P3 kept shedding holds - a hand hold went when I only had one hand on the rock, but managed to slap for another with my other, and then a foot hold went again saved it, finally another hand hold went in the same way...hurrah for Culm

P1 and 3. P3 didn't feel any easier than the previous two

A great route. Done at high tide on a flat calm and super hot day. First pitch is worrying, which is dodgy in places. Pitch 2 follows and changes the character of the climb, from serious to fun and interesting. Pitch 3 is brilliant up the ramp of flakes. I'd well recommend doing this then it is absolutely flat calm or at low tide, else you will get wet!

First proper climb with Joel for quite a while. Big step onto the first face and then calm and steady progress. By the second pitch I was really enjoying it. Beautiful day with a calm high tide. Perfect.

Epic! Led the crux pitches but bigger waves than anticipated forced a retreat. Reversed the crux and Alex led the escape up terrifying choss. Good day!

Bit disappointing; some good climbing but some poor descriptions in the guide. Tide went completely out during climb so lost atmosphere, traversing above a boulder beach!
