[Isabel on Little Dribbler, 3 kb]Good sustained climbing up a continous thin crack-system. Start just to the right of some raised ledges at the seaward end of the promontory. 21m. Move easily up a stepped corner and stand on a blob. Sustained moves up the thin crack-system and through the overlap gain the easier upper wall. © ROCKFAX

Lead with Jay's gear still in place due to the fast approaching tide. Few tricky moves at the overhang - look for the underclings and side pulls. Just made it down before the tide arrived!

Yoyo after a fall at the overlap. No idea how or why I fell, good micro placement saved me nicely though!

lots of gear in all the right places. 5a climbing but more like VS because of the quality gear placements throughout.
msoldn - Lead O/S - 13/Aug/11 with Rory

One difficult move - stepped up left at the overlap - delicate but quite manageable.
ruaidh - 2nd - 13/Aug/11 with Michael

Rapidly incoming tide made this more exciting - quite tricky through the overlap...
