You beat us Gavin. My records say I was there with Don Moger on 25/7/2002. I agree with you it is a superb route but one h** of a slog through the heather up from the track.Worth it !

If this is the crag that contains Blankist, HVS 4c - which I think it is - then it\'s worth a visit. Perfect granite, long run-outs, and only two hours from the road(!). May is a good time to visit the island. Blankist is a superb route, and a relatively new addition to the crag.
