Nipped down at the end of a family day out. Mid tide and choppy waters, so went high in the cave and pumped out when a good rising line of holds led to blankness ...need more stamina to hang around and suss the sequence, horribly unfit at the moment :-( Anyway the swim out was refreshing and the route is amazing fun, hope to return later this summer in better shape and have another crack.

Really low tide so had to stay low .. unable to make move in cave (not sure how the move went .. no way the route I was on was a 5a though). Also was wearing booties rather than rock boots .. made not the slightest bit of difference as the climbing was either very easy or hard work on your arms/fingers.

6b+ version

Chris Sansum 29/Jun/08 Solo dnf

My first DWS route. Start was a bit of a sharp jaggedy rock solo rather than a deep water solo, as you would have hit quite a lot if you'd come off, mainly due to the quite low tide level. Made it nearly all the way, then bottled it after running out of steam on the overhanging 6b+ crux section - not used to this falling off malarky, being a trad climber! Great fun though. Water wasn't too cold, surprisingly, although the sea was a bit choppy at times!
