UKC

The most common way of starting the Free Route. From DBB, head left (often wet) and then up shallow corner. Step left to undercuts, then move back right and make hard moves up the face on small holds (crux). Finish more easily to belay on large ledge. About 5/6 bolts but a fair few pieces of trad gear required.

Got a soaking from a big wave swinging across to the belay and got super flash pumped on this. Such good climbing and a good test of my abilities as a Climber as I was in charge of doing everything. A great day with Kate as ever!

Soaking wet in high swell! Absolutely epic but fair to say conditions weren't ideal! Somehow fluked it on gopping rock to the undercut rest. Thought I might do it but a particularly massive wave soaked me as I shook out! Regardless, can't work that crux move out- feels bloody hard to me. Carried on to the ledge with one sit to do P2.

Great pitch, with a short/sharp crux. As with P2 of the Free Route, all the hard sections are bolted, with gear (cams/wires) coming on the easier ground.
