A great route
Lumbering Oaf - 2nd O/S - 19/Sep/14 with James Hoyes, Rach Batt

Lead as one. Awesome. Lovely balance stuff. Poorly protected for 2 seconds, should have got s1 to unclip the traversing rope for s2...
Batt - Lead O/S - 19/Sep/14 with Matt Box, James Hoyes

Careful ropework required if climbing in a three.

cymjt - Lead O/S - 15/Sep/14 with Tom L

Started along P1, took a nasty fall in the corner due to the route being very wet and then backed off and escaped the crag.
alastairbegley - AltLd dnf - 09/Sep/14 with Andrew Twemlow

I led P2, the easier of the two. Really good, contrasting pitches in an imposing setting, well worth 3*
Nick Russell - AltLd O/S - 09/Sep/14 with Alex Winter

Brilliant. Led first pitch, which felt a bit serious.

A great route, one of the best E1s I've done. We came back for a rematch at low tide and with calmish seas after being put off the route by a raging sea the day before. Hard for E1, particularly getting into and going up the corner. I actually went to the end of the corner, then realised that was the E3 line so had to climb back down a bit. An interesting line. P1 reminiscent of Millstone - blocky holds, decent friction and dark brown rock colour. Did it in 2 pitches. Ed didn't fancy P2 so I led it as well. Nicely varied - slab, crack and two overhangs, tho they weren't hard to get round (some 5b moves on the second one).

Lead Pitch two. (5b) very enjoyable climbing once past the inital groove (finished ina fantastic sunset) attempted it three times, first - too greasy, second - nearly washed off the belay ledge (everything totaly soaked and salty) and thirdly the waves only just love enough not to get washed off again.

my favourite route of the year. got down there was very wet, waited around for hour to dry. I got the first pitch start was wet took a while 2 get round the roof the traverse was thrilling. Enjoyed how the rock changed on Pitch 2, good climbing but not as good as pitch 1

climbingpixie led the first pitch. Pagan started the second but found a combination of loose rock, guano and lichen. We escaped up the descent route.

An almost epic due to swell and fast incoming tide.
