|Climbed wreckers slab today. The decent path down is showing lots of signs of very recent rockfall and the final bit was still falling when we got to it the groung in the area is veey unstable. We abbed down the back side of the ridge. The route itself seemed all good though once you got to it|

|In-situ rope is still there on the descent, and in pretty good nick.|

|The stake at the top of stormy weather has been replaced. Thanks to the brave northcoasteer who carried a sledge hammer all that way.|

|This is a long shot but here goes...
I was climbing on Stormy Weather on 26,6,2010. Unfortunately one of my mates had a bad fall so we had to leave in a hurry. Two of my cams are still in the route, if any one finds them and would like to return them I would be very grateful as I don't live in Cornwall.

|Access to the bottom good. When ur heading down, Head left and hug the cliff edge for a scree slope and tricky descent, or keep right for a bushy safer descent (imo).
Do not climb "The Plank" unless you are well experienced and have an assortment of pegs. The top is EXTREMELY loose, in the fullest sense of the word!
Check Javu.co.uk new routes section, for a more exciting version of Wreckers. "Wreckers Right Hand", bringing back the looseness and exposure :)|

|There is (currently at least) some tatty in-situ rope for the final part of the descent path mentioned as eroded in the guide.|
