Rockfax Description
Beautiful climbing and positions mark out this route as one of West Penwith's most sought-after VSs. The route can be climbed at high tide during calm seas by making a straightforward abseil approach down East Gully and belaying on high ledges at the start of the first pitch. Start on a good ledge at a crack on the left wall of East Gully, around 10m up from the bottom of the crag.
1) 4a, 14m. Climb the crack to a belay ledge on the left. The ledge is just below where the crack thins.
2) 4c, 20m. Climb up the thin crack-system with difficulty, which soon eases, and continue up the crack to a large mushroom shaped blob. Use the blob to move right into a short corner and follow it to a stance on a good ledge.
3) 4c, 12m. Take the steep crack above, passing the last bulging section with difficulty. Move left to a stance and belay on a long ledge.
4) 4a, 13m. Move right and up behind a large perched block and follow cracks up a wall to the top of the buttress. © Rockfax

Some spicey moves for a VS - stunning location and plenty of exposure on the 3rd pitch. will defo be back to Chair Ladder to sample some of the other delights on offer. Great mini adventure.

Great climb! I lead the first pitch (again). Matt lead the 2ns. Spent a long time figuring out the first move and then did a storming lead on a challenging and exposed pitch. Went a bit off-route at the end though. I lead the 3rd pitch and was very pleased to do it. Was getting pumpeed hanging about and knew that was a road to nowhere, so found a convincing undercling and managed to boom up it, not stopping to place gear! Very exhilerating pitch! Matt closed the proceedings with the 4th pitch, another nice pitch. Classic route, worth the hype!

Lumbering Oaf 11/Sep/12 AltLd O/S

Led P2 and P4. Matt led P1 and P3. P2 and P3 have the awkward bits. Lots of gear on route. P2 was good value - went left after the saddle-boss rather than right which made top out awkward.

I think it was 1 am before we left the Trewellard Arms, having finished late the night before and failed to find anything meaningful to eat - lots to drink, mind, but not much to eat. Low tide was at 6.30 in the morning. At 7.30 I was sat at the bottom of the route watching my mate lead the first pitch; it was a cold, grey day, with the wind blowing the tops of the waves in my face. I felt awful. By the time I'd led pitch 2, I felt great and the world was a wonderful place! It's that kind of a route.
