Much more pleasant experience compared to than last time, a great end to the day and good to revisit and enjoy this route with the buzz of the solo. Did first pitch (the easy one) attached to the abseil rope in trainers then soloed rest properly after. All done in about 5 minutes, by comparison I felt sorry for those who where stuck behind very slow parties for several hours at the first belay earlier in the day and only finished just before me.

Having had a Lundy trip planned for quite some time for this route specifically I was worried it may not live up to the hype. Fortunately the route does not disappoint, beautiful granite slab at an amenable grade. The gear was a bit spaced and sometimes poor but never desperate. Micro cams help a lot. Did in 3 pitches, with 50m ropes. Beautiful climbing.

Some long and lonely leads on this one - quite surprised at the big run-outs with reasonably tricky climbing on some parts of the route. Have to come back to do the proper final pitch as it was blowing a gale and threatening rain when we got to the belay. 'Escaping' off right was quite interesting including a 20m pitch with only a sling weighted down by a guidebook for protection.

I led P1 and P2 (strung together) and P4 & P5 (strung together). The white scoop on P3 is great and the traverse on P4 is really exciting for the grade. Dropped my camera from the final belay, but the corner of Albion caught it and despite really get bashed up it still works.....kind of!

AnneMarie 14/Sep/16 AltLd O/S
CathS 14/Sep/16 Lead rpt

I led the whole route, with guidebook pitches 1&2 and 4&5 run together. No pushover for the grade, with sustained technical climbing on the upper slab pitches and long run-outs on small gear (microwires and small cams came in very handy). The traverse is the best bit and very enjoyable, with gear in the right places to protect the trickiest moves. However, our day was ruined by a very slow (2 hours per pitch!!) and utterly inept group of three on the route, who seemed completely oblivious to the two other parties stuck behind them. If they had a bit more consideration and a modicum of crag etiquette they would have stepped aside for 20 minutes to let us and the pair in front of us overtake them at the mid-point belay at the ab station. But they didn't, so we were all consigned to 3 and a half hours of waiting for them to clear the route before we could finish it off. Ended up untying from the ropes and wandering back up to the top to get water and lunch to avoid dehydration and starvation while we were waiting! This destroyed the continuity of the route. Six and a half hours to do a three pitch climb that as a team of three (that included a novice) we would have otherwise done in less than 3 hours. Complete nightmare! Felt like keel-hauling the lot of them when we bumped into them again a few days later on the Oldenburg...

fun friction climbing on the slab itself, lack of gear is not much of a concern as the moves are all fairly easy, but the traverse is a bit of a sandbag at the grade requiring good footwork with very little protection (VS 4b maybe?) & exposed for the 2nd as well.

Started with a soaking at base of a crag by a freak wave, everything below the waist soaked, including chalk.... but everything got better after that. Nice easy slab climbing up to traverse and then proper exposed moves to base of groove after that. Maybe traverse should give this route VS 4a or have a better indicator of how little gear there is.

Having missed the first day's climbing because due to high seas we had to be helicoptered in, we proceeded to Focal Buttress. And ran away because there were birds. We then ran away from the Montague Steps area because the tide was in, St Patrick's buttress because of a clearly aggravated seagull (while just walking around above the crag), ran away from the Indy 500 buttress because there were birds at the bottom of the crag and we didn't fancy abbing down and getting mobbed by seagulls, and finally gave up on not doing this on our first day. No birds! :) Led pitches 1&2 (together, 60m ropes) and pitch 4.

I did first 2, Dave 3, me 4/5. What a day...for all those thinking of doing it in a day read on...Caught the 10am ferry (the ferry company timings are out...) 2 hours, arrived 1hr 45mins later only to have announced over the radio that the ferry will leave at 15.30!! 2.5 hrs earlier than we had been told....the booking lady told us that it sets sail from Lundy at 18.00 not 15.30! She'd obviously given us the arrival time back in Ilfracombe, which was actually wrong again as we actually landed at 17.00! A whole hour earlier than suggested....rubbish. So panic set in and so landing at 12.00 only gave us 3.5hrs to get there climb (hopefully queues!) walk back and leave. With a little help (can't say anymore) got there in good time, rushed around (no guide...) for the route, a note for those in the same boat...after the three quarter wall, hand rail the wall down to the coast until you see a stile, then hit the path and keep looking over the brow until you vaguely see the slide (we didn't think it was obvious to see, there are other bluffs/rocky outcrops to fool you) Once there an easy (thank goodness) down climb, or easy one pitch ab on a good boulder leads to the start. The climb we smashed in an hour and 15ish luckily had it too ourselves, topped out at 14.00 walked back briskly to the waiting ferry, it doesn't leave you much time and we felt pretty stressed all day. Next time two/three days but time didn't allow. As for the grade...E1/2 pro but HVD climbing. If you like gear this isn't for you! Great climb but possibly wasn't worth the 5.00 am start from Sennen Cove and all the travelling to do one climb. But have wanted to do it for ages, and it's a 'Classic'! Hope this helps? Enjoy.

Is it heresy to be a bit disappointed? The first pitches are much too easy and the third pitch has to be the white groove otherwise the grey rib is also too easy.

I did first pitch to abseil point halfway up. We then waited while a couple of lovely ladies from London inserted themselves into our climb by bribing me with a choc bar. They'd earlier retrieved my cam dropped on Albion so v grateful. Alan completed the next pitch to a small ledge threequaters of the way up the slide. I did the next pitch including the delicate traverse and Alan led the last little bit feeling really glad to be past the traverse.

Basically as good as people say it is. Got a bit too close for comfort with the sea at the bottom. Tide was coming in and got soaked just as I set off on the first pitch. Should have lead the first 2 pitches cos they were easy, last pitch was quite scary on second as a fall would have resulted in a big swing and a fair amount of pain...

Dan Lane 25/Jul/10 Lead O/S

brilliant route, loved the final traverse with 400 feet of blank slab below. Ellie almost got washed off the ledge at the bottom of the route...i ran up the first pitch and set up a belay ASAP, after she had done about 3 moves, a massive wave came in an covered the ledge in a couple of feet of water, soaking her in spray in the process.

A bit over-rated, but doing the middle pitch in the rain may have contributed to this. Have to go back and do it in the sun!

Made a mad dash to climb this before the ferry back to the mainland. Made it to the half way break in one pitch, and tried to get to the top on the second. Ran out of rope which resulted in some dodgy simul climbing with little in the way of pro between us. Ended up being one of the most memorable leads of the week!
