24m. A varied but well-balanced climb up the sunny side of the pillar offering the full Culm experience. Climb boldly but easily up to the left arete, then carefully gain the crack system. Follow this with improving protection until it kinks into the shaley chimney and so do you. Finish directly.
Take care with loose blocks when moving out of the chimney onto the top of the pillar they are now getting unstable.

Glad I wore a helmet as I was showered with rocks as Joe led it

Safe enough for the lead, bloody dodgy for the belay and crap came raining down

Lead with Nicola on a nice sunny afternoon. Started in middle of the face didn't really move to the arete but good nut and cam placement before moved left to upper crack line. Pulled ropes through to anchor on the beach before bringing up second.

Nice climb on a sunny day. Easy start up the middle and then when things start to get harder there is ample gear to protect move left into a good crack with chimney like resting all the way to the top. Rope pulled through and anchored on beach before brought up second.

Exciting finish, v exposed bridging up the shaly chimney trying not to knock off loose bits. No belay on top so had to be lowered down the back!

Great fun route. Nice climbing, but very loose at the top. Belayer was dancing out of the way of bits coming down. Had to rig up the rope to anchor it on rocks the other side of the pillar and then do an up and over to abseil down. Not much anchorage at the top. Makes it all feel more adventurous
