31m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
The best route of its grade in the area. A remote setting and the need for the right combination of tide and calm seas make this a serious undertaking. It is not a good route for the inexperienced. Start from a massive block below the large undercut buttress.
1) 4a, 16m. From the block, make a tough step-up onto the wall - crux. Good holds lead up left into a shallow groove. The groove provides steeper climbing to gain a large ledge and good belays.
2) 4a, 15m. Climb up rightwards to a huge flake-crack. Large nuts or cams protect the moves up the flake-crack. From the top of the flake-crack, move right to an easy-angled but unstable slope which, with great care leads to the top. © Rockfax

Pre-place a rope for the top if you are not use to swanage exits.

A great micro adventure. P1

Chris Sansum 23/Sep/17 AltLd

Chris P1, Ewan P2. Climbed as we waited for the sea to go down so we could do 'Ambler Gambler'.

Led P2. Adventurous and the rock on P1 is cool, but not worth 3 of anybody's stars. The unprotected boulder problem start above a precipitous drop is a bit mean at the grade too.

Tris led P1, I led P2. Nice climb, friendly moves and decent gear. Dirty slope to reach the belay stake is nasty. Set up a belay just below the slope and sent Tris up to sort it out!

Led the first pitch then when Chris and Mike got to the belay ledge they had decided that I was going to lead the second pitch as well, that was nice of them!

Heavenly 1st pitch after a tricky pull at the start! (dangerous for Andy seconding after pulling the gear flicking out!) Found the mantel shelf quite tricky with a bag on, on the 2nd pitch. Great climb, but the relentless heat was getting to me!

Couldn't get onto the route we wanted due to the sea (abseiled in onto a lone block out amongst the waves... took a long time to get to the start!) I took first pitch (typical swanage start) Chris took second. Nice move near the top!

I led P1. Top blocks look like they could tumble any day, treat with care! Poor route compared with others in the area, not worth 3 stars.

Lead both pitches. Had no big gear so last pitch was fairly bold. Getting to the belay stake was the crux as there was no grass to pull on this time of year. route-Vdiff topout-Vs

chriswitts1 19/Sep/08 AltLd O/S

Climbed pitch 2/2. This is in the rockfax guide as a VD, but in the climbers club guide as an S. I would definately rate this as Severe. The start is the Crux, but the second pitch has bold moves up the flake. Excellent climb and well worth the 3 stars!
