The superb slim groove leads easily to a break on the mid-height ledge. Move left and attack the upper wall. The lower-off arrives just as things start getting really hard. Climb past it and put a hand on the top for a 7a tick. © ROCKFAX

schof - Lead β - 13/Jul/11 with Big phil

Lovely climbing up first groove...nice 6c+ then traverse long way left across seagull infested ledge to climb obscure hard 7a moves above hittable ledge and two bolts to nowhere lower off.....dissapointing 2nd half

artificial and disappointing: bottom groove climbs well but was manky, stupid run-out to ledge, attacked by nesting seagull, got stressed about hitting ledge and pulled on draw (still taking the onsight) to get next clip in, sharp holds for crux moves (7a more than 6c+) and it finishes in the middle of nowhere.
