40m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A popular but wandering outing. Start below a big flake-crack in a steep wall 60m east of the abseil (right - looking in).

1) 4b, 25m. A crack leads up rightwards to gain a flake. Follow this to its top. Climb a corner on the right to the fault-line, then traverse right to belay on a ledge.
2) 4a, 15m. Step right off the ledge then move up for 5m. Traverse left to reach the quarry. Care required with loose flakes. © Rockfax

Nice climb with good gear up to the belay. I found the belay on the ledge a bit difficult to protect but managed to get in two nuts and also clipped to an old piton. Second pitch was an absolute breeze and over too quickly!

My first abseil into a route, my first trad route as well as my first multi pitch, so lots to learn. After Andy set up the first belay station I set off with a lot of trepidation.....and instantly came unstuck! For all the will in the world I could not retrieve the first piece of gear, after 10 mins of desperate attempts, and getting pumped, I had to move on. Getting to the belay station was utterly terrifying; I could not look at the sea at all it was so high up. The second pitch was ok, however what a day and what great memories. I hope one day to lead this.

Had tried Ledgend Direct first but the overhanging crack was greasy & I was probably too knackered after FG. So backed off and went up Ledgend instead, which Syd enjoyed. Later ab'd down to relieve the gear and then top roped Ledgend Direct.

Minor epic to coax Trevor up the route after he had been unable to second Jill. After convincing Trevor that this was the easiest way out, I led the first pitch, putting long slings on all the runners. I managed to get Trevor up the pitch with a combination of a very tight rope and judicious use of runners for aid. A lot of trouble getting up onto the traverse at the fault line. It then started to rain so I led up the top pitch (stepping out over the void), so we could get out as quickly as possible. Trevor was just starting the hard bit when the heavens really opened and it poured down for a few minutes. At last Trevor made the move with a tight rope and much coaxing from Jill, who shouted instructions to him as if he were a disobedient child. A minor epic and an eventful day!
