Rockfax Description
A long line that has a very traditional feel to it, and is a little dirty in places. Start at the toe of the ramp at the end of a seawater-filled trench.
1) 20m. Climb the intimidating right-trending ramp and crack to a good ledge and spike belay at its right-hand end (care is needed to protect the second on this pitch).
2) 12m. Ascend the large flake rightwards to its top and then work up the slab above it to a stance next to a large crack/corner.
3) 14m. Move right to a crack and climb it to a break. Step right to another wider crack and climb its left wall to a ledge and belay on blocks.
4) 10m. Climb a short crack to a horizontal break, traverse left to a ledge and finish up the corner-crack above it. © Rockfax

Lead up the ramp, then continued up the big corner and slab, then another couple of pitches.

LMC Cornwall meet. Enjoyable climb if a bit overgrown in places. Led pitches 1 & 3. Scramble down is a tricky one - down climbing required in places and definitely wouldn't want to slip!

BarrySW19 16/Apr/17 AltLd O/S

Good route - first pitch has a bit of a desperate dyno for shorter climbers to get the pocket, otherwise pretty much VDiff.

Led pitches 1 & 2 - great adventure climbing, probably harder than a standard Vdiff. Lynn, P3 & Martin P4. Fantastic little route each pitch has its own character and all were fun - P1 was interesting for the grade.

Very good climb in spectacular surroundings. Watch out for abseiling down into the (hidden from above) sea gulley on descent!! Two bold moves, at pitch one and the other at pitch three. Weather was excellent and the seagulls left our grub alone. Highly recommended and worth the trip. Personally, I thought that the climb should be rated HVS, due to the awkward moves required, but can't praise this climb enough!

Sunny and hot. Lead all 4 pitches, navigation on pitch 2 and 3 tricky. Surprisingly challenging for a VDiff, felt more like a severe. Pitch 3&4 are dirty (but dry)

I led the first and last pitch. The first pitch was a bit wet which was more interesting since I was climbing in trainers... Interesting slabby hand traverse on the final pitch.

Lead all pitches. Went off route after pitch 2 and went straight up rather than right and up the slap, had a technical overhanging move which was harder than VDiff, great fun though.

Didn't take enough gear and went off route. Bit of a 'mare. Lesson learnt: Climb multipitch with more snap gates, screwgates or quickdraws!

P1 & P3. P1 & P2 very nice. P3 a bit horrible and mossy. No feet hand traverse seemed a bit stiff for V Diff. Lovely place and weather though.

First pitch is brilliant. Can be tough for the second, if the leader isn't thoughtful with the protection. Upper pitches are not obvious, but worth it for the first pitch...

The first pitch is in a spectacular position, giving vdiff access to E grade territory. Lovely climb in perfect sunshine.

Challenging route finding through plants, lichen and guano. Intimidating but feasible final pitch with hand-traverse into mantel-shelf onto guano covered ledge. Had to wash hands afterwards but all good fun.
