Ache Ball** f7C+ / V10
[Ru Davies on Ache Ball, Font 8a, at Hartland Quay, Devon, 2 kb]Climb the left arête of the cave from a starting notch, using heel hooks and raw power. Depending on beach height this can be a standing or sitting start! One of the best. UPDATE: More storms early 2012 have knocked more foot holds of and part of the starting hold, could be 7c+ now
