67m, 2 pitches. Start from bottom right toe of Gannet Buttress, close to Gannet Rock just above sea. Climb upto overlap, traverse right up then back left (mind the fulmar) and follow RIGHT HAND groves to the terrace and belay. Gain the pinnacle via the crack, step off and follow crack to overhanging headwall on right which is climbed on great holds, move right and the holds keep coming. Belay just below summit, then jump the gap and traverse the ridge to get down. Many seals will obseve and award marks.

The most weird move ever, having to crawl like a seal on that roof....

Fulmars, Choss, the largest UK based spider I've ever seen... absolutely great though and I would say the best place to see seals on Lundy. The upper crawl section is awesome and can be tackled in many many ways (some of which resemble climbing!).

A proper adventure HVS. Great approach, dodging fulmar patrols, crawling through spider infested breaks and finnally climbing in some amazingly airy positions, all to a choir of seals singing Kate Bush songs.

Could have been improved by the absence of spiders. Nonetheless a great and interesting adventure HVS.

Great location, definitely worth a visit, the seal choir were something to behold. Had to do an inverted first pitch (right to left) to avoid obstacles, but continued up the second pitch as usual. Horrible crux onto the ledge, but managed it eventually. Stars are for the location, not the route.

Had a lovely audience of seals.

best belay ledge ever with seals coming up to watch :)

Led both pitches. Ended up traversing right and then up to belay, as was unsure of route in guide. Lots of rope-drag, even with thoughtful runner placement. Topped out in dark, and Sarah needed a head-torch to second top pitch. Leap over gap and scramble across ridge made more scary by dark and wind! Club members sent out search party as we were not back by 9.30pm!

pitch 2 only due to tide state and time constraints. very varied route with offwidth, steep face climbing and stomach traverse, all well protected. seals aplenty to watch, scary jump across gap to finish

P1 is not so great, but P2 is bloody brilliant fun. Well worth the walk and *lots* of seals in this quiete spot.

Variation start. Climb easily up the groove to the right of the normal start then go straight over two overhangs to arrive at a black cave like recess. Belay. Leave the recess on the left and quicly join the parent route at the "25 foot groove"
