Rockfax Description
A massive trip across some wild rock formations which is guaranteed to get the blood pumping and the heart racing. Allow plenty of time and make sure you are a competent well-balanced team since escape after the tide has come in is tricky. The line is also visible on other topos.
1) 5b, 15m. Climb Swordfish and belay at the base of its groove.
2) 5c, 25m. Climb up to the break then follow it leftwards to a ledge just right of Heaven's Door.
3) 5a, 20m. Step down then pull around the arete. Follow the break to the ledge of Neptune.
4) 5b, 25m. Reverse down the groove of Neptune to gain the juggy band, then traverse left to the slot stance on The Whaler.
5) 5b, 30m. Follow The Whaler but continue left along the upper break to a hanging belay on the arete.
6) 5b, 15m. Traverse the slab using a horizontal crack, then pull up into a groove which leads to the top. © Rockfax

Inaptly named - wasn't exactly plain sailing but a great adventure!

Proper trad. Perfect when the tides are at annoying times, ended up down climbing part of Heavens Door E3 crux pitch instead of the HVS, and Jenny took some amazing pendulum lobs on a 00 cam into space. Our variation bit felt 6a but none of the 3 guidebooks were consistent anyway.
