Great route. Lead p1/3.
tompilgrem - AltLd O/S - 28/Oct/11 with Dad

great route, great for someone new to see cliffs. can be lead in to pitches easily with no rope drag. has lots of gear so the VS is only there for the commiting absail. and the 4b and 4c pitch should both be 4b, easy ones at that
carl_123 - AltLd O/S - 29/Aug/11

Shared leads with John, i took pitch 2 which was really nice going over the overhang and up to the face which is full of gear and good holds. Other pitches were a bit of a dissapointment, not quite the classic we were expecting.

Took the crux pitch, Sam lead the low traverse and the loose upper slab. Nice climbing but straight forward at the grade. Climbed at high tide, and with a bit of swell, so got pretty 'damp' whilst belaying.
