My first experience of climbing on sea cliffs. Weather glorious. Most of the birds have left but did see some choughs and a seal. Exhilarating abseil to the starting ledge. Straightforward for the grade in a wonderful atmospheric setting.

We meant to Lighthouse Arete, but did the more direct line. I led from the bulge bit to within 15m of the top. Gary led before and after this. My first ever time at Gogarth 10 or 11 11 years after I first started dreaming of going. Found it quite exciting, guess I am out of practice on sea cliffs.

garywong 06/Aug/14 AltLd O/S

Disappointing route, over before it begins. Climbed in three pitches, doable in two.

Suspect that precious climb on this route wasn't the direct version. Gudebook description doesn't seem to match actual climbing. First pitch is only about 10 m long? Most of the pitches seem quite short and easy. The only tricky section is the first move getting established in the overhang. Otherwise it's a path. Good warm up for other routes though.

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

Jonny Nick 28/Aug/11 AltLd O/S

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.
