Rockfax Description
The right-hand groove of the big open corner gives an excellent route with a exciting and exposed finish. Pull over an undercut nose below and right of the groove then move left and climb up to the second of two pedestal ledges. Move up then swing right into a line of broken cracks which lead to an awkward position below a roof. Move right to a rest below another roof, then pull back left and climb the groove to the top. © Rockfax

Starts easy then gets steep, but decent holds keep coming. Hard at top though, needed tight rope.

Pulled off several of the big loose blocks at the top (unintentionally) and broke my nose. There are now fewer loose blocks on the top out but care is still needed!

Very enjoyable. Very well protected, big gear useful low down. Steep but great rocj and holds, final groove now pretty loose but so needs care but the climbing is easy by then.

Guaranteed to put a smile on your face, or at least a good gurn. Way steeper than it looks and jug city at the top just as the pump starts to really catch up with you. Brilliant.

this felt like hard work - covered in 'grease' and probably not best conditions early morning just after high tide. still very, very good and surprisingly steep through the blocks. quite technical at one or two points with an unlikely-looking and exposed finish.
