Rockfax Description
Short in stature, but not in interest. Start at the base of the blunt arete with a heavily pock-marked right wall.
Pull up onto the ledge just left of the arete proper, and make some balancy moves up it to gain and climb a crack on its right-hand side to the top. © Rockfax

Quite a pumpy and sustained climb on holds that weren't quite as good as they first looked! Fun to second, and pleased to have got to the top in one go.

Well, this was bit messy. First, a lump came off in my hand which was rather unnerving, then had trouble finding suitable gear, but made another hoping for better - there wasn't! Started panicking a bit, dropped a cam, then decided enough was enough and down climbed a bit to jump onto the ledge. Ideally need a 'barely started option' in style of ascent!

There is gear but it tends to be small stuff in the central section - not sure if I had strayed on to Cumbelloe or not.

An errant wave washed onto the ledge and resulted in wet ropes but we made it out alive. 1st climb of the day and it felt hard.
