Rockfax Description
A true classic of its grade, which follows an almost unbelievable path into, and out of territory that looks as though it should be reserved for far more extreme climbs. Start on ledges level with an orange, lichen-covered ledge (this is the belay ledge at the end of the first pitch) as viewed from the easy, rocky-ground that runs down the right side of the zawn.
1) 13m. Traverse horizontally rightwards past a bay to a good stance on the orange ledge.
2) 4b, 22m. Continue the traverse rightwards for a further 12m, then descend the steep wall and corner to a point just above the high-water mark. Move right to a stance and belay. This pitch requires careful route-finding, and is much trickier if damp.
2a) 4b, 18m. An inferior variation on the second pitch continues the traverse, below a long, narrow overhang, all the way to meet the base of the corner above the cave, and a restricted stance. This variation is less affected by sea conditions.
3) 4a, 38m. Take the wall above the stance to meet the corner at the overhang. Follow the corner in a breathtaking position, all the way to the top. © Rockfax

Alex Hallam 17 May AltLd O/S Probably without doubt the best route I've ever done. What a position, what a location and what a combination of faff factors you have to take into account. Scoped it out a few days before at high tide and big swell to see the back cave spewing spray up the final corner. Not ideal. Came back at low tide and less swell two days later to do it. E5 positions with Severe climbing. Brilliant. Pete added a HVS extension to the traverse, I took the easier lower traverse to the good ledge. You have to go down below it then come back up. Apparently this is confusing. But understandable as neither of us had looked in the guide book.

BStar 19 Apr Lead O/S What a climb, pretty good value for HS! The down-climb on P2 gets pretty tricky at the bottom, protected the second by leaving a bomber cam at the top of the crack and then picking it up on the way back up on P3 by reversing the alternative pitch. Ken Wilson certainly missed this little gem.

jessieleong 5 Sep, 2018 AltLd O/S Not going to lie this route was one I was pretty nervous about! Waves made themselves known at belay 2, sunny conditions which required climbing in the sports bra! Emma cruised in the traverse on P1 whilst I looked on nervously... even pitch 1 there is an exposed step and feels very exciting! I lead P2 ( first big traverse) with lots of runners and then the pretty wild down climb. Downclimbed ( Jamned foot) and then traverse and climb back up to the belay. Emma lead P3 which was amazing- lots of great moves esp out of the roof and all the way up. A route to remember!

Rob Seymour 25 Jun, 2018 AltLd We arrived behind a family group of three just about to start. Very cheekily we pushed through on the grounds that two would be quicker than three. Fortunately we were not embarrassed and so it proved. I took P1, Ron took P2 and I finished off up P3 on with big Hexes and Rocks, racing to keep in the shade on an otherwise red hot ascent. Hydration therapy (pints in the Gurnard's Head) followed ... dry and hottest ever, what a route.

ladempsey 29 May, 2016 Lead Tried the second pitch but got confused, downclimbed the wrong (and far more difficult!) way, had to come back up and remove some gear before swapping with my partner again at the start of the pitch. He then fell trying to get to the small belay ledge at the end of the second pitch but we somehow managed it without getting soaked or hurt. I then did the third pitch on-sight, what a beautiful and sustained climb. Started to run out of gear to place, but the holds were great and the moves interesting so topped out without too much trouble. Overall took us five hours, phew!

Matt Smith 25 May, 2015 Lead O/S What's a classic climb without a slight epic... All went wrong after misreading guide. P1 went fine and is amazing. Downclimbed too early on P2 but got to position level with belay. Didn't realise you had to continue downclimbing and traversed across using a pocket and slot (probably 5a). Zoe quite understandably didn't like the look of it, especially with marginal gear. So backtracked up p2 and finished via high tide version. Red nut left at p2 belay and a gold 4cu cam left in p3 if anyone wants to return them :-) Overall route is great, amazing, superb... but read, read and re-read the route description...

1poundSOCKS 29 Jul, 2014 AltLd O/S Jon led P1 and P3, I led P2 (after Rich soloed it). P3 is fantastic, can't be many better at the grade. Awkward move on the downclimb of P2, and the belay wasn't the best, so I was hoping Jon wouldn't fall and pull us both into the sea. I also worked out that backclipping on downclimbs will better protect the second, and doesn't affect the leader. Note to self: be careful to pull the ropes gently on traverses, the gear does seem to fall out more easily.

We climbed it on a lovely sunny day in the summer and the crux of P2 got soaked with high waves. Thankfully things dried quite quickly. Would be incredibly committing in other conditions if the rock wasn't quick drying and the waves were higher. Lovely though and mostly straightforward climbing.

Ben Snook ?Jul, 2014 Lead O/S An excellent couple of hours. Super easy for the leader, but requires constant thought about safety for the second. P1 was in some ways my favorite; a complete path heading out in to amazing territory. P2 was fine for the most part, but I forgot to downclimb far enough, and traversed at half height between the horizontal break and the belay ledge. This involved moves on a pocket and a slot, not much for feet, and a sweaty slither on to the stance; definitely not HS 4b. I did not envy the second, and despite their success at following, regret that I didn't do a better job of protecting them. Good belay anchors high up. P3 was pretty special; a 100ft ladder in an incredible setting. We started only about 2 hours after high tide in a lowish sea, and had no wave dramas. Go and do it!

The corner/slab is delightful, but I did not think as hard as the last pitch of the second route. The definitive guide and rockfax seem to disagree on the grades.

Simon Caldwell 1 Sep, 2011 AltLd O/S Utterly brilliant. I led pitch 1 which is easy but massively exposed, and the final long corner. Carmen led the descent pitch so in effect I was "leading" it, and duly threw a wobbler near the bottom where it gets hard and you can't see any more footholds. Somewhere near the top of my "all time favourites".
