Led both pitches. Fantastic location and much better than load of of the other overcrowded routes only a stones throw away. 1st pitch up the clean pillar face is ace on good holds with plenty of gear except for the final arÍte which is no harder than the crack and on good holds. The 2nd alpine style pitch isn't as bad as it looks though I did have to removed some quite large blocks. We abseiled into the zawn to the right down the loose face only an hour after low tide and I had to do some serious rock hopping and wading to get to the route with the 2nds almost having to swimming as the sea came in so fast, scary!!! Overall better than the 2 stars it gets in the CC guide. Climbing difficulties 4a as per guide but probably best be prepared for an adventure at the grade and higher objective danger on the 2nd pitch than most routes nearby. BEST ROUTE OF THE TRIP :)
