Rockfax Description
The first in a trio of fine wall climbs fortunately has a misleading name. Start beneath the large yellow-streaked curving groove. Climb up the barnacle-covered lower wall to gain the groove. Follow this to a roof then pull up above to a good hold. Finish up the short wall and blocky corner to belay in the open gully below the clifftop. © Rockfax

βeta: I wasn't keen on the lichenous start - this route just doesn't seem as continuous as Keelhaul or Baker's.

Misha 24 May, 2015 Lead O/S Mildly concerning. Greasy start as the tide had just gone out and damp in the cracks. Gear was not particularly spaced but rarely bomber - probably ok but fiddly and not very confidence inspiring. Committing moves over the roof. Think it deserves the E3 in the CC guide, at least it did in the conditions on the day.
