A very worthwhile route. Found on the right handside of the yellow flaxen wall. Start beneath the obvious crack and climb the lower wall boldly to the crack. Pleasent climbing up the crack now leads to the broken upper wall and quickly the top past a couple of loose blocks.

Ticklists: Alex's Cornwall and Devon ticklist.

quite bold to start with sandy feeling holds but the crack is amazing once it's reached very nice.

Bearing in mind that there was the constant sight and sound of bits of cliff decomposing around you the 3 routes we did today were on reasonably sound rock

Very nice climb. Enjoyed on a sunny evening just topping out as the sun was setting.

Pleased to finally solo this. A really good line with good climbing to boot!

Beautiful sunny afternoon. Route is obvious and gear is both plentiful and good. Tough start but easier at top. Rock is better than it looks. Top is good.

Seemed very hard for HVS! Certain dusty feel to the holds. Steep and sustained.

Took a fall in my lead attempt when a hold snapped. Very sustained for HVS as listed. Hard at E1. Good pro when you make the crack, but doesn't ease off until halfway up.

Fantastic crack climb up the yellow face. Bold start on good holds to the beginning of the crack. My heart settled once I got the first nut in at the base. From there follow the crack using crimps and hand jams till the crack widens. Then relax on jugs to the top. The belay is not as tricky as the guide book suggests. There are some good solid cracks for cams if you set up a hanging belay. Make sure you test the rocks first as a few around are wobbly! The decent off the back is the worst part down a grassy slope testing rocks as you go to hold on to. An ace onsight to tick off.

loved it, set up a hanging belay with two nuts and a cam. Remember what side to put the dead rope and when climbing look around more, to the left and the right.

Have previously climbed but really enjoyable route and different to most routes hereabouts!

Maybe E1 and some quite loose rock in places. The peg mentioned in the guide for the belay is too high for the second to clip. I lowered Paula down and she belayed me so that I could abseil down the opposite side of the fin.

Worth doing well protected on surprising rock was harder to get into the crag bit of boxer short traversing needed!
