ClimbingAlex 29 Jun Lead O/S Definitely would not have known about this except for the excellent BMC video "the seaside". Really good and well worth the faff of getting to and doing. Did it in a oner. Very glad to have a pre-placed rope at the top.

Matt Magecha 29 Jun 2nd Really cool climb, think it was a fair bit easier than i expected, very commiting move but felt pretty solid on it!

surferdan 26 Jun, 2018 Lead rpt 2nd E2 flash. Said I wanted to do something easy, haha but in the end it was so hot in the evening that I simply wanted to get into this cool zawn where I had seconded Barney up this route. Will teach you leading some other time Laurence! Was slightly nervous as I abbed down the face and setup a hanging belay just above the water. Started up and surprised myself with how much in-control I felt. Some beautiful moves all the way especially on the traverses and once established on the slab. I just couldn’t believe hog the gear just kept coming. E2 is supposed to feel hard! Huge credit to Laurence on 2nd for dealing with the hanging belay and sticking those moves! Would be silly not to have fixed rope at top while dealing with vertical grass. Noted the missing chunk of granite, looked like it was a jug and was probably the one Luke removed! Still goes :)

Chimnastics 21 May, 2015 2nd O/S Did as 1 pitch. Luke cruised the crux. Then, after moving right and going up the ledge system, a foothold blew on him, and he took a massive whipper. He got back on and finished it no problem though. I found it quite emotional! The crux moves for me were very hard. Getting into the corner was harder maybe than the huge reach out right, which turned out to be a leap of faith, I was sure I was off. Sustained 5a climbing all the way after that. Great route!

Tom Last 24 Sep, 2014 AltLd O/S Perfect end to summer. Led 1st pitch. Very very pleased to have done this, easily one of the best routes I've done in Cornwall. 1st pitch easy groove ( wet from spray ) to superb cruxy moves with very good gear, then run out but easy to belay. The belay is semi-hanging and not amazingly inspiring. I had 6 small pieces which were okay when loaded, but just sort of fell out when dismantled. Easier to move 10 feet further right to good belays in Light in August (this won' affect the route) 2nd pitch sustained 5a and hard to read. Very good quality route. Hard to get in condition, but currently bone dry (except the start, but that was the result of the tide/swell). Good quality granite all the way, no loose blocks as described in current guide. Leave a hanging rope for the top out though.

pete osullivan ?Aug, 1990 Lead O/S Tide was in so it necessitated a move on damp holds from the left which was quite gripping. No fixed rope at the top which led to a very dry mouth whilst climbing over boulders embedded in the vertical earth and grass
