Talking Heads** E2 5b
[Steve Burdett on Talking Heads (E2), North Stack Wall, Gogarth, 3 kb]

Rockfax Description
A decent mid-grade route, which definitely requires a low tide. Start under the crack of Nice 'n Sleazy. Traverse left just above the sea until you are beneath an overhang high up. Climb the wall, then the crack that leads up to the right-hand end of the overhang. Make an awkward move over this and then make a bold step left to reach the final crack. © ROCKFAX

What an amazing setting. Whole wall to ourselves but for two curious seals as we waited for the low tide. Great climbing and good gear throughout. Managed to disturb all the peace and tranquility with a massive screamer and lobbed a hold at Tony. Bloody riff-raff.

Really good fun, jugs all the way and more gear than you can shake a stick at. Airy step near the top. Seconded too to get out.
