Cool climbing and awesome positioning but pretty scary... The top out was very loose, maybe not a route to try when you're on your own (as I was!)

Not overly pumpy just really nice! A journey
Great line, lovely undercut traverse into steady laybacking on good holds. Good smearing practice!

Adrenalin rush of some intensity at the top, had to lie down on top of the arch shaking violently. Been eyeing this up for 7/8 years but first move onto undercuts is committing and hard to reverse, stepped out and couldn't reverse so just kept going, as my arms pumped out and unfolded in front of my eyes at the end of the undercut traverse, I lent back and inadvertently formed a chimney with the back of my head as the rock jutted down behind me to save me from a watery fate. Finished up the final groove using every devious bridge , jam, chimney and layback I could muster. Very exciting even with a great tide and conditions. 3 stars for intensity and position.

fell on the last move after going under the arch at low tide, slit both knees and ended up in A&E.
Mmmm... pump-tastic! DWS-ble at S1/2 (big high tide required) but I wouldn't fancy that m'self ... not an entirely solid top-out.
Amazing. Good pumpy moves, then the fear as you emerge in slightly dubious territory on the other side.
