What it says on the tin...Culm Coast Classic; quietly crumbling and happily deserted.

The crux features a couple of thin moves on so-so gear (the peg is old and the back up is a micro cam). Easier above with the odd harder move. From the bottom it looks vegetated at the top but it's ok. Fun route to second and plenty of it - 45m. How on earth is that pancake still hanging on?! Added some new ab tat (offcut of my old half rope) and cut away the worst of the manky old stuff.

Great climbing all the way through. The moves past the peg need some commitment. The arete is a less vegetated finish but needs treating with care.

Nice E1 to the peg then steady hvs climbing, such a classic!

Backed off lead - didn't even get to the peg. Too intimidating and not sure that i have the gear skills. Pete cruised it.

Lots of gear: I ran out of extenders. Once past the peg the gear improves.

3* classic route that keeps up the interest to the end. Great lead Chris, as I was watching the tide creeping slowly in! Middle section is a romp. E1,5b is about right.
Sean Kelly - 2nd - 22/Jun/14 with Chris Ebbutt
Fantastic climb, huge wall of north facing Culm at its sustained and intimidating best. Goes into my S.W. all time top 10! Very clean climbing no vegetation or loose rock.

excellent adventure with the traverse variation start and ridge scramble off. definitely 3 stars! Edge of the Pancake and the arete at the top need treating with care!

Becky E - 2nd O/S - 13/Aug/12 with Graeme Hammond
Stunning pitch, but clearly E1, had to climb the arÍte for a few moves above the pancake to avoid solid vegetation. Epic walk out in the dark and rain (had to start very late due to tides) :)
Graeme Hammond - Lead O/S - 13/Aug/12 with Becky E
Think it definitely gets it's E1 status, much harder than the other E1's I've seconded and Simon agrees. Second time Simon's climbed it and he's found the best way to set up a belay is to lead, pull through the rope, throw it over the back of the fin and tie to a 50m abseil rope and tie to boulders on the beach below, then pull it all back over the top. Makes it a bit more scary for the second but safer, plus easier to abseil then pull it back through.

HVS 5b, or easy E1, it's long and sustained but only one tricky section low down, top arete is also the best finish but a little loose in places....also worth it's three stars....

Awesome route. Wish I'd led it.
jon bradley - 2nd O/S - 13/Jun/10 with Huw Howells
Good route. Interesting approach - shale scree and shoulder high gorse/nettles & bracken. Bit grassy high up the route. Tat at the top was good.
chris j - 2nd - 22/Aug/09 with Doug
great adventure. Brilliant climb. Well worth the effort getting there
Mr Tickle - Lead O/S - 24/May/09 with davenev
Scree scramble descent - must be easier to walk in along beach if tide permits. Long sustained route but pretty awesome climbing
davenev - 2nd dog - 24/May/09 with luke
The descent to the rock is hairy esp if one goes off course. The climb is excellent, the crux goes ok but the sequence needs thought
