65m, 3 pitches.

Rockfax Description
An exquisite climb that culminates in a breathtaking finale at the very top of the crag. Start just right of a low, overhung niche.
1) 4b, 22m. Take the line of left-trending flakes to a small corner groove and climb this to a ledge and good belay. The pitch can be climbed direct, passing the overhung niche on its right at HVS 5a.
2) 4a, 14m. On the right is a blank-looking slab, climb the slab rightwards on good small holds to a huge flake. Scramble behind it to a good ledge and belay on its opposite side.
3) 5a, 30m. Move up big ledges to where the rock steepens. Climb steep cracks heading for a black stain in an overlap above. Pull over the overlap, peg, and then step left before climbing up slightly right to easier territory. Layback up the exposed, leaning cracks in the headwall to finish. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
The peg on the crux of P3 is now broken off and missing - note there is good gear available next to it. Please do not replace - the agreed policy for West Penwith is no new fixed gear and let old gear rust in peace.

Can't say I enjoyed this route! First two pitches were fine, but I felt they were nothing special (led P2). Pitch 3 is very strenuous, and the middle (crux) part is not particularly well protected for VS 5a (HVS 5a is surely a more accurate assessment?) I think 3 stars are one or two too many too!

I think the crux move (softish 5a) isn't amazingly protected. The cam next to the dead peg I was about 60% happy with, seeing as it's directly protecting a 5a move, I'd be happy with HVS for this. Lovely climbing though if you're happy at 4c/5a. Glorious finish on the final juggy flake/arete.

lead and did pitches 1 & 2 only (which are VS 4c IMO).... I'd have to ageree this is HVS without the peg also, the only other good gear available either blocks the good hand hold or is at foot level before you start moving up to do the 5a move (not what you expect for VS 5a IMO). The reason we didn't complete more pitches is we backed off from the crux! Too early in the season for bold 5a moves!

Expected the crux to be the overhanging layback, but that was easy. 25 year wait to climb this route. While at 1st belay a girl leading 2nd pitch of Doorpost peeled off while topping out the second pitch - upside, she hit her back first...got back up and finished the lead, running into the 3rd pitch to the top. Freaked me out, I put in an extra few runners.

Really great climb. Lead the first and third pitches. The first was a bit runout. On the third pitch placed a nut just under the dodgy rusty peg. Thought about not clipping the peg as it looked in bad condition...but did...and then took a fall! Foot popped, fell on peg and it held! Wasn't expecting the fall and wouldn't expect it to hold. Leaving the third pitch was tricky as well... Great route though.

Fond memories of this. I may take a hammer with me next time I go to Bosi. There's no reason not to remove that peg now. It was in atrocious shape seven years ago. I can see no reason for replacing it once removed, either. Hey, it might even leave a nice scar for a nut placement.

One of the most memorable ascents I've done in a howling gale. On one of the horizontal jams high up, with a friend in one had, the wind picked me up and I was led horizontal in the stream for a good 10s. Fortunately, the jam was good.

I think i lead pitch 2. Goi definately led pitch 3 as his feet were blown off the crag as he was placing a cam at the top. He held it with one hand. Placed the Cam, then got his feet back on.
