30m. DWS 4+ S2 From the LHS of the Outer Pinnacle (facing out) climb up to a sloping shelf and traverse 4-5m above the water until a fissure above a sea cave. Traverse along the lip of the jutting block, descend a crackline and move left into the cave. Squirm up the slot towards the daylight.
Variation: S0 but a little harder: it is also possible to make a low level traverse to the cave; pull up to join the hand-traverse.

Dale Turrell 7 Jul, 2018 DWS dnf Mini epic! Kept too low and traversed into the first cave thinking it was the entrance to the blowhole (you're supposed to avoid by going high). Realised there was no way out at the top (light coming in but far too small). Reversed out of the cave and made a pretty hard move to get across its entrance just above sea level (instead of going up and around). Got to the blowhole and climbed up but someone had taken a sh*t down into the chimney from above! Reversed back out of the blowhole and "escaped" up the outside of the Outer Pinnacle which was high and technical with no positive holds (which turned out to the last pitch of Jumping Jack Flash which is NOT a DWS route), scary!

Chris Ebbutt 27 Jun, 2018 DWS Entrance to blowhole not obvious at high tide, need to duck under final block to gain squirm up to the daylight, great fun, can’t believe I’ve not done this before.
