A little suprised but very pleased to see the Bantham Hand still standing after the battering the coast has taken from the winter storms! Anyway it is a most excellent esoteric adventure and the following is a short video of the "crag classic" with the added bonus of a simu-abseil to descend: http://youtu.be/r3pRHHWKBsU Cheers Dave

Not sure if this is old new or not but climbed Bantham hand the other night and there was a big loose flake on the route. Half way up the route on the left of the vegetated gully, there is a greeny yellow flake that is definitely not attached! Something worth looking out for. Other than that, nice climb with amazing views. Cheers
