Rockfax Description
A relatively popular corner pitch that takes some time to dry out. An atmospheric climb that has good gear and rock. Start by abseiling down the line to a small sea level ledge and belay.
Climb steeply to a ledge. Continue up the fine corner finishing to the left of the top overhang. © Rockfax

Great climb marred by the first ten metres being soaking wet. Surely on of the longest jamming pitches in Cornwall? Endless secure, pain-free jamming. Double up on medium to large cams.

Only one wet patch to negotiate. Required some lateral thinking. Great climb made even better by a warm sunny evening and a swarm of beautiful jellyfish floating at the base of the route.

Does this ever dry out?

Sat on the rope to retrieve a very stuck cam. Would have been good if it wasn't gopping wet.

Take as many medium to large cams as you own. Needs a dry spell. A classic.

Fantastic route! Glad to finally get on it! Climbing is very good was soaking in places but still superb. Holds & gear aplenty take some big stuff!

Very good, though lots of seepage at bottom (similar when I climbed it a 2nd time).

Climbed whilst Ian Parnell was leading Pierrot le Fou. It's us in the background in the photo in the 2000 guide book! A bit wet and slippery lower down.

We abseiled in to find it very wet - far too wet in fact! Sadly ended up part climbing the route and part grabbing our ab rope on what is a stunning line.
