Forgot my rock boots so climbed in approach shoes which did the job

Substituted p3 for part of the HVS next door due to nesting seagull. They're not joking about the loose rock!
Fiona McFarlane - AltLd O/S - May/13 with Ben ram

Don't get on this expecting a severe! Feels more like a VS. Thought P2 was very good. Found a seagull nest at the top of P2 so had to go left into very loose HVS 4c. Top pitch is nice (and loose).

led p3+4 together, nice route at a even standard but could do with more traffic, easy to get to and easy walk off too

climbing up preferable to climbing back down the death gass on the way in!
krusty23 - AltLd - Oct/10 with Kyle F

First climb on gogarth, good intro to harder stuff on the cliff. Has its fair share of vegetation and a little loose rock but is not unpleasant atall.
tompilgrem - 2nd - 29/Jul/10

First route on Gogarth and very enjoyable. Yes it does have a bit of loose rock and some furry litchen- but its a sea cliff !!
bobpilgrem - Lead O/S - 29/Jul/10 with Bob/Tom

Abbed off from first belay. Would obviously be an excellent route if it attracted some more traffic and got rid of all that lichen.
Peter Metcalfe - Lead dnf - 03/May/10 with Cath Sullivan
