Rockfax Description
A superb pitch packed with excellent holds and climbing and with the added benefit of a solid finish. One of Swanage's best HVSs. Move up the wall on great holds to a flake at 10m, before climbing rightwards on steeper ground to gain the fault-line (possible belay). Gain the steep wall on the left above the fault-line and take this to an overhang. Go left and up into a shallow corner with difficulty, before easier bridging and crack climbing finishes this memorable pitch. Low in the grade. © Rockfax

βeta: Not as good as finale Groove! The line is just not as continuous and a little easier. I think this is the easiest HVS I have ever climbed, I wont argue about the grade though because it is a tiny bit awkward to protect due to strange shaped cracks. Great adventure, especially if you scamper across from Guillemot Ledge (calm seas, and low tide only).

βeta: An excellent route, steep and sustained on massive holds. Comparable in quality to Finale Groove, but a tad easier. Optional lie down rest at the half-height break. Best approached across the boulders from Guillemot east.

trythis 4 Apr, 2015 Lead O/S Lots of loose rock dislodged. The second climbing before us pulled off a large block that luckily only grazed the belayer on adjacent route. They cleared off more loose stuff on their abseil back down but one block remained (wedged on one side) at about mid-height that will probably go at some point. You can avoid pulling on it but take care where your belayer stands until it has gone. Seemed fair at HVS 4c.

mikehenesy 21 Aug, 2014 AltLd dnf Persuaded Sonia to follow her heroic lead on Zo Zo with a trip up QS. With the tide coming in a rapid rock hop along to cormarant was paramount, no rest for the wicked. An east touch for an HVS it could be argued but on the back of a demanding lead, and with a bit of stamina sapping route finding, a couple of wrong turns and half rope miss clipping horendous rope drag it was a route too far. She heroicaly made it past the over hang and then 'bonked'. We finished it off via'ish wall street. But all in all a grand Swanage adventure!
