Rockfax Description
A bit of an eliminate. From the cave pull directly onto base of the smoother section of the slab using a pocket and a flake. Continue more easily - pleasant! © Rockfax

Was too good, had another go on this resting day!

Very good climb, glad I was on top rope as there is virtually no gear (or poor) until the break, which is almost pointless as the top is on easy jugs. Worth the climb though!

neuromancer 26/Jun Lead O/S

Start is 5a at the hardest, and protectable with two small wires. Difficulty comes from the next five to six moves also being 5a, and whilst there's still protection (more small wires), it's pretty fingery and sustained and hard to place. Eases greatly at the bulge. Fun!

First E1 lead, eliminate start that is impossible to protect- you can only thread the cave to stop a fall into the sea. Once you are a third of the way up the climbing is much easier and pleasant. great route.

Joris.Roulleau 29/Sep/12 Lead O/S

Not sure if I climbed this or sunset boulevard. Start was a bit hard and poorly protected. Quite eliminate.

2011 CC guide indicates that this is the line of Sunset Boulevard - Breaking Wind is to the left, between this and Sea Mist

The initial few metres, which is the crux, are underprotected.

Really lovely technical moves. The start is the hardest and gets easier as you move up. Awful to almost no gear which is why it was top-roped.

Yet another chump who wanted to do sea mist and was led by the old CC guide onto this. Hard start on small holds, small wires, tight line that is not very good or very independent, but worth doing if you've done the others there. Threw down a few big loose holds that were threatening my belayer, but there is still a big rotten flake high on the lower face to watch out for.

last in a party of three, leader did Pink 'Un and second got all the gear out, so I was free to do this. Very nice moves, slightly awkward start.

Better than I remember great easy 5b moves to start which need confidence.

The first few pieces of gear aren't great. Good Zero 5 but very low, a pants zero 6 for the crux and a good zero 3 higher up.

Scary start, I didn't do the straight pull from the triangular hole and had to traverse left a bit and back onto the route 2m above. The rest was a nice cruise with enough small wires and cams.
