Seagull nest at belay forced traverse off
Cheese Monkey - 2nd O/S - 09/Jun/14 with Rich R

DNF due to seagull attack as Paul arrived at the belay ledge. Traversed out right. They're not visible from below but those birds were definitely not pleased to see us!

wish the guidebook had mentioned the looseness of the route. Would be a nice line if you could trust the holds.

Went off route on 2nd pitch. Stumbled in to some very loose and very big flakes, close one. Ensure you aware of the root before starting out!

s.c.white - AltLd O/S - 13/Mar/11 with tim, joe shippcot

Lead second pitch. Went easier way up as it was very loose and bad gear so didn't risk it. Pulled a huge rock off.

selman - Lead O/S - Nov/08 with Fip Tonkins

I had to traverse right to safety on second pitch instead of upwards, seagulls were attacking me. I think the route went through a nest, I guess its nesting season!

Too windy

'A very serious route in a very fine position. Bombed by seagulls.'
