Guy Harris 20 Sep, 2019 Lead O/S Climbing is exceptional. Take a big cam for the bottom crack. Top twin cracks offer some exquisite finger locks. One of the best.

eddy-on-the-rocks 8 Sep, 2018 Lead O/S Did in a oner. Size 4 cam essential for P1. The dampness made it harder but the strong breeze pushing me on to the rock canceled out that problem.

sinbad 8 Sep, 2018 2nd Struggled and then fell on the crux near the top - a lot harder than the first time...in 1993! Chartered a fishing boat from Clovelly with South Dartmoor Mountaineering club with Ed. Slept in the car the night before - early morning and choppy ride across, then tent up and off to the crag. Weather was cloudy windy and damp - and my shoulder and ribs still giving me lots of pain after mountain bike crash at Bike Park Wales with Harry at start of August. Still - excuses not covering the fact that 25 years later and considerably heavier and weaker the route was too hard for me - a theme to be continued over the two days... Still - great to be back on Lundy, great to be out climbing with Ed again, just need to get fit again!

James Oswald ?Sep, 2014 Lead Lead both pitches, excellent & deserving of it's extreme rock status. The initial roof on P1 was hard, followed by sustained crack climbing (grit E1?). The crack section on P2 was fairly blank and the jams were poor. I almost fell off the top of P2 when I went the wrong way on the final roof. Excellent.

Misha 10 Sep, 2012 AltLd O/S A great route! All the better to do it on a day which started off drizzly, such that we weren't sure we'd manage to do anything at all. Phil led P1 - thankfully, as the crack was awkward and I found it pretty hard going. P2 was excellent, 5b/c crack/face climbing with rests going into a tough 5c section just below the roof, a half rest and then the crux! Careful footwork and planning the moves paid off, glad to get it clean. Well protected throughout, no more than 5c but still solid E3. Phil followed quickly while Piers struggled a bit but got up eventually.
