50m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
Stupendous wall climbing up the best line on the face. The climbing is hard, and high in the grade, but the gear is very good on the hardest sections. Start as for Tudor Rose at the right-hand end of the sea cave overhangs.
1) 6a, 25m. Follow Tudor Rose to the good, small rest ledge on its traverse and then climb up to a narrow overhang. Move up to the groove above and make a very hard move to enter it and exit right to a good hold. Climb the short wall above to the fault-line and a hanging belay on nuts, cams and a thread.
2) 6a, 25m. From the fault-line, move up right for 5m and then step left to a foot-ledge. Move up to the base of the white wall, then climb thin breaks and flakes, past twin pegs, to another peg, and a final, long move to a good hold just below a long ledge. Stand on the ledge, and traverse rightwards to a blocky corner. Climb this with care to the top. Belay on fence posts. © Rockfax

P1 & P2 O/S (belayed on higher the left as the thread belay is poor) top pitch by far the better! Well impressed with Callan getting the bottom pitch clean on 2nd and the top with only 2-3 falls given he'd done his first HVS that morning.

Great to get on this and find it reasonable. Great rouute, great end to a fantastic weeks climbing.

Fantastic route. Annoyingly slipped off the crux of pitch one. I lowered to the ground then did it clean ground up. As always it felt easy the second time. Dan then cruised pitch two. I would recommend leading it in one. It is a great line. The belay is a little artificial.

Thought I was on Tudor Rose! First crux felt pretty nails for 5b :) In 1 pitch - probably safer for a softer fall onto the pegs. They looked ok but not bomber. Top wall would be awesome/scary e4 without them.

In a single pitch. Really good!! No worries at E3 even without the pegs I expect. The face was pretty hyped up, but it is actually that fun! Either this is overgraded or I'm getting stronger, because I didn't find any 6a moves on the top face. The lower crux felt harder?! Spectacular outing. Really memorable.

Managed to get in enough kit to make it safe assuming the pegs were all worthless (they're ok); but agree would feel E4 without them.

Lead P1. Sweet little crux through the grooved bulge, but all quite steady apart from that. 2nd pitch is quality too!

Alex Mason 13/Aug/10 AltLd O/S

Led P2. Pitch one was quite sandy/loose (is this expected at swanage?). Pitch two was slighty better, but will be E4 without pegs.

In one big pitch. Pegs not great.

Ed Babs 07/Aug/10 Lead O/S

3 pegs in the headwall still in reasonable nick. Great climbing on both pitches.

Excellent and fingery. Reliant on pegs for protection.
