Rockfax Description
6b+, S0, 45m. An enjoyable low-level traverse. Start by scrambling around to a ledge in the first cave. Make a wild swing onto the underside of a slab and then onto a boulder in the back of the second cave. Continue to the arete. Reverse the route. © Rockfax

Spicy start with 1 foot of water under the crux. Best way to start a day at stair hole!

Probably only flashed this because Matt fell in and I wanted to show him who was boss. Was subsequently a massive girl about jumping in the sea at the end so the mastery perhaps not so long lasting.
