Hole in the Wall*** 7a+ s1
[Sam on Hole in the Wall E5 6b or 7a+ S1. Four stars either way., 2 kb]

Rockfax Description
15m. Inspiring; this is an absolute must. Gain the hole and take a deep breath, then step up and span left before summoning up all your strength to snatch for the elusive jug. The remainder is much easier. © ROCKFAX

UKC Logbook Description
A superb route taking the most amenable line up a tremendous piece of rock. Gain the hole directly by some thin moves. The crux follows, moving left and palming up the edge to a jug. Finish by the obvious line above. 7a+ S1 if you DWS it

On Gri Gri, good warm up
Russell Birkett - TR rpt - 24/Sep/15 with Phil Jack

Lack of skin and deteriorating humidity, couple of falls, keen for a re-match.
andyinglis - Lead dnf - 19/Sep/15 with Russ Birkett

Too hot. Then too Haar. Nice to remind myself of the angle of the wall though. Great rock, great movement.
Callum_Johnson - TR rpt - 16/Aug/15

No ropes with me this time, so traversed in from the south. Shoes off to keep them dry going across the seaweed ledge on the south wall that was under the water, shoes back on at the ledge below Mowgli. Full value. Love this route.
Callum_Johnson - Solo rpt - 15/Jul/14

Happy days, incredible climbing. A bit of a choppy sea though, falling in not an option! Great bit of rock.
Callum_Johnson - Solo RP - 07/Jul/14 with Dayni_

Brilliant route, linked via self belay on a gri-gri. Sea was a bit choppy so opted not to solo today, can't wait to get back on it in calmer conditions.

Rankers - Lead - 2014

Superb route on great rock. Was chalked, so I got a swatch of the crux holds on the way down on the ab
Russell Birkett - Solo β - 03/Jun/13

Hidden - Lead - 2012

Climbed to the crux 2 or 3 times and then back down to the Hole. Finally jumped off the crux having wimped out of trying the move to the jug. Can't wait to try again!
