So much for a nice easy warm up lead... After a mildly terrifying approach down vertiginous spongy grass to the cliff edge, we abbed down to the ledge at the bottom of Vallum by mistake. As the sea was high and lively we then had to do a pitched high level traverse (led by the intrepid Keith) round to the left of the rib, which landed us on a big ledge in a corner, further left than the start shown in the guidebook topo. I then had to do a scary 10 m rising traverse up a steep (slightly overhanging!) black wall to gain the rib proper. Small, positive holds, but sparse and crap gear and slightly crumbly crystalline rock. I reckon HS 4b? Once I actually got on the VDiff, it was very easy and in a good exposed position above the sea. Type 2 fun.

belayed on ledge halfway. End of the day in the bleak rain, not too much fun but probably a good route in the sun! Unlikely VD terrain in first half!

Really nice climbing, enhanced by big waves breaking over the rocks behind me!

Amazing experience to finish off a good day. the sea was almost perfectly still so belayed just inches above it, nice sunset and then to top it off a seal just a couple of metres away. Even the climbing on the route was pretty good!

My first climb on Lundy. A great VDiff but can be made harder depending where you go. A very enjoyable route. Should be 2 stars in the guide.

Intended to do the route, but probably didn't as couldn't quite figure out the guide book description. We just picked a nice route up a rib from sea level.

Superb position, rock and climbing, it's a pity the best line is a little escapable.
