Rockfax Description
The route up the big corner which runs the full height of the wall is a strenuous undertaking. Climb the groove all the way stepping right around the first roof. © Rockfax

Greasy start.

Decent route. Wet in the jamming crack at the bottom then damp but the crux wasn't too bad and dry above. Found this quite awkward, you'd think you can bridge all the way as it's a corner but at times there are no decent footholds on the right wall. Dislodged a loose rock at the top by stepping on it, fortunately the pieces missed Phil.

Climbed on an alarmingly incoming tide, on a big swell, whilst it was raining...

finished up vladamir, after all the hard climbing which makes for a *** link up, with no real change in grade. Brilliant route

Really enjoyed this. More physical than expected: the peg is poor but can be backed up though it felt quite awkward and strenuous to do so (bridging, smearing and finger locks all around this bit). Once you've sorted that out it keeps going a bit more than you might expect / want but then eases. Crazy rock towards the top, save some big gear and slings for this. Old school as the description says and very good!

Adventurous. Bomber gear not as plentiful as I expected, but there's enough, and it probably added to the experience.
