63m, 4 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A Sea Walls classic that sees plenty of action. The climbing is bold on the third pitch but is fairly straightforward and not polished. Start at a short wall just right of a thin crack, as for Morpheus.
1) 4a, 18m. Boulder up the short steep wall to a big ledge and a good nut-runner. Wander right to an easy-angled blocky corner and follow this for 5m to a belay ledge and rock spike.
2) 16m. Move leftwards up a smooth slab to a broken corner-line, follow this to a good ledge and belay on its right side. The lower belay nuts are poor but the best placement is just above and not easily seen when standing on the belay ledge.
3) 17m. Climb the right-trending slabs above in a fine position, but with no protection, to a good crack where the wall steepens. A quick pull gains a belay ledge.
4) 4a, 10m. Climb the steep, well-protected corner-crack behind the belay to finish. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
(4a, -, -, 4a)

Turn right during the first pitch of Morpheus. Pleasant climb for a sunny afternoon. Fun corner crack on last pitch.

First outdoor route of the year (unfortunately) so decided on this as a bit of a warm-up. Stuck to the Avon Guide of 4 pitches but you could easily link pitches 2 and 3 together (and probably 4) with a bit of loud shouting over the traffic / wind! There is a crack leading straight up from the final belay which look more interesting than the 4a polished finishing crack, steeper but great holds.

It was already getting dark when we started up this route, and so the tradition of abseiling off by headtorch continues.

A great solo! The traverse pitch felt very exposed without a rope.

Humpty Dangler 15/Sep/07 Lead O/S

How not to do it. I left some gear behind and then missed a belay stance. Ended up doing the whole route in a single pitch, with just enough gear left for anchors. Topped out up the S groove above the Nightmare tree.
