Rockfax Description
Varied climbing with a couple of teasing moves all on superb rock. Start where the lower right side of the X feature meets the platform.
Climb the wall either directly or from the right to a ledge. The thin technical corner above gains another ledge from where a slabby wall leads right to finish. © Rockfax

A difficult move getting of the ledge, but super well protected and a comfortable position to work it out. Very nice route

The thin corner is hard to start especially for the short.

Initial wall slightly damp which made it more than a little scary! Felt very tough for HS 4b but may be easier in better conditions.

Tide was just going out with a moderate sea so felt exciting. Justin had to start a bit to the left and traverse in. Dampish holds and felt committing. Definitely hard for the grade, felt like VS. Good lead Justin!

Wonderful place, loads of pro. Previous party lost a micro cam, now a nice yellow handhold.

We did it in 2 pitches as we got stuck behind someone trying to get out a stuck cam. I was getting cold at the bottom, so Dave brought me up to the ledge, which was in the sun, and I then lead through.

Belayer was making me rush, as the the tide was rushing in! Kicked out my gear as making a move at 4m, which left me with a ground-fall potential at 6m! Stopped panicking, and placed some gear. The "technical corner" is more than the grade, and the wall is more like it! The last section is less straight-forward than it seems.

Gear had to be worked for in the lower section, which was still wet from the tide. It made for an exciting start, but after that good pro and good climbing.

Hamish lead first and then backed off so I lead it. Gear tricky to place and quite tricky moves for HS. Really glad I had some microcams, used them both. More like VS. Really great climb though, worth 3 stars.
