Ab'd onto the slabby shelf with the intention of doing Shamrock, but the sea was a bit too lively, so decided to escape up Cow Pie. OK route, but v. loose at the top.

Average first pitch, set of stairs for second then a 10 m runout across loose boulders/mud one of which was thrown at me. One of the worst climbs I've ever done your better off doing Shamrock twice!

the final scrambling section is rather testing
John Brayshaw - AltLd dog - 11/Sep/09 with Erica

Led P2. Climb is OK but is not worth doing simply because of the horrendous and downright dangerous top out.
Jim Slater - AltLd O/S - 29/Aug/09 with Angus

Good climbing, but the top-out is pretty terrifying. Judicious use of the ab-rope might help matters, we overcame it with fear and good fortune instead. In the new guide at VS 4b, 4b and the first pitch is still tough at that!

set off to look at meninirons,bit too bold for me..Also, appalling top- best to leave a fixed rope in place.

Earthy top-out, fixed rope recommended.

Geoffers - Aug/03 with Bean

Cow Pie is okay-ish but not great. The top scramble is dangerous.
