Traversed to start to show Charlie where it goes, intending to then have a swim but thanks to some peer pressure the next thing I knew I had made a bare foot ascent!!

Watched Chris climb it flawlessly, then did the same. Great route. The water was considerably higher than the last time I attempted it, which helped reduce the feeling of exposure. Still, I wouldn't have wanted to fall off the top.
petecallaghan - Solo β - 18/Jul/12

chris ebbutt - DWS - 18/Jul/12 with steveprice.exmouth, petecallaghan, Stuart

Two footholds disintigrated, a tough 6a+ and a bit crumbly I thought.
