35m. From part-way up the huge corner, follow the crack line on the left wall all the way to the top, via a well-earned ledge at half height and a steepening finale, breaking left to top out. Pumpy, exhilerating and with loads of gear, a 3 star pitch if ever there was one.

Failed! Too hard! Bit wet! No chalk! Then tried to escape off second pitch of Hot Rod VS 4c but fully wet by now and rock soaking and little gear left! Struggled up with rests moving big cam up with me as went up. Wanted to give up and come down, but had to continue as ab rope already gone and would be stuck at bottom! Epic failure. Will have to come back one day. Andy seconded the VS climb in wet, so had to ab down and get gear out and reclimb in wet! Epic Failure! At least it wasn't dark.

andrewmc 22/May/16 2nd O/S

Excellent route - I thought this was technical but really not that sustained (if you were sensible with your feet rather than hanging off your arms), plus I was only seconding... Pro Tip: If (like me) you are stupid enough to come climbing on Lundy during the bird ban season, abseil straight down onto the routes rather than down the grassy gully - that way you shouldn't annoy the seagulls nesting at the bottom of the gully and on the ridge you have to cross (obviously if you are annoying them anyway, back off and do something else...)

Start of the route was a bit of a waterfall, bridged up the wet chimney a little to get to the dry stuff (think this was the line in the guidebook anyway) Really good climb that is well protected, quite a hard E1 I think, it's so sustained but very well protected. I plugged in a ton of cams and offset nuts. There's a brilliant rest directly before the grand finale. Loved it!

with Dave Platt
Sam Husband 04/Aug/14 Lead O/S

First legit E1 (Cenotaph Corner seeming too easy, the Amone Slab being bolted and Strapiombante having been a repeat). Swore a lot. There are miny cruxes everywhere so don't place your gear expecting the bits the guidebook says are hard to be there. Lots of places to rest though so I managed to place tonnes of gear. The climbing is three stars but it's not as spectacular as other 3 star routes being tucked up the side of a gully.

with Ed
Stroppy 04/Aug/14 2nd O/S

Godd effort Sam! We agreed that the guidebbok seemed a little misleading when it says hard start and finish, it all seems about the same difficulty throughout, albeit with a few good rests on small ledges. Very well protected.

First route on Lundy. A bit harsh as a warm up as it's a tough E1 but F1 is no more (I belayed on it...). Good moves and pretty sustained apart from a couple of ledges but not really a 3 star line, particularly as very close to the VS grotty corner in its lower section, so I'd say only 2 stars.
