Fohn* HS 4a
[My first lead, 2 kb]

Rockfax Description
The face of the inner pinnacle is far less tidal than its offshore near neighbour. Start below the summit of the pinnacle.
20m. Climb straight up the middle of the pinnacle's main face to an awkward belay. Sparsely protected, but technically easy. © ROCKFAX

UKC Logbook Description
Found on the first triangular shaped stack to the right of the main crag. Start behind a large boulder beneath the top of the stack. Climb direct up the slab starting on deep cracks which peter out further up.

Ticklists: West Country Climbs, Sub Extreme South West Sea Stacks.

Nice to do a new route. Started too far right and had some technical moves to gain the proper line. Very nice though, well worth climbing

Yearly tradition of dragging my Dad and sister up a sea cliff route in North Devon forcing me to be as textbook and safe as possible, which I think I did pretty well on this occasion
