[Soaring rib of Xanthoia rising out of a sea mist. With the groove of Pooh Corner to its right and the chimney of South Pier, 1 kb]30m. Climbs an arete and rib towards the seaward end of the fin. Start at the left arete of the obvious groove of Pooh corner. Climb the arete for 12 metres (40 feet) to read a ledge. Continue up rib above, taking care with a loose block on the way. Block belay on top of the fin in a fantastic situation. Small and medium cams very useful on this climb
