βeta: A fun route of ascending difficulty, with a bitch of a move to on-sight to finish. Very red-pointable as the clips are nice and close when needed and once found (which I didn't)the final holds work well.

Fraser 28 Jul TR dog Nice route, tricky finish when pumped. Probably doable next visit as I think it's soft at the grade and possibly a bit morpho.

Cyrees 19 Apr Lead dog Fell off at exactly the same places as I did at the end of last year. Would be annoying, apart from the fact I broke my back nine weeks ago - so pretty psyched to be back at this level already. It'll probably go soon, but weather far too hot for more than 1-2 serious attempts.

julesmckim 23 Feb, 2018 Lead O/S Another excellent route on this fabulous wall. Really pleased and a little surprised to get the onsight. Easy lower wall, good rest and then lovely sequence through the groove. Managed to recover below the roof and then a bit of slappy desperation with end-of-the-day arms - long moves to poor holds then long moves to better holds. Great end to the day with the sun setting into the sea and the rock turning gold. Pints of Broadside at the Cove House tasted great after this.
