Pete spent around twenty days trying the route, managing all the moves very quickly, but finding the whole link to be exceptionally difficult.
"It's very similar in difficulty to Silk Cut (See UKC News), but way harder to climb. You need a rope, a belayer, it's tidal and really conditions dependent." commented Pete.
The ascent was filmed by Bamboo Chicken Productions and will feature in their forth coming film about Welsh climbing.
