Rockfax Description
Sustained and pleasant climbing with a well-positioned top crack. The first 9m are not well-protected. Start at a good nut belay just right of a narrow chimney. Move up a flake-crack and take the wall above to a move right into a triangular niche. Climb to the next horizontal break, step left, and follow the delightful face-crack to the top. © Rockfax

The afternoon after Hurricane Brian blew through, still high winds and not (quite) raining. Dave and Bob too cold and windblown to follow. Would like to do this again on a better day and enjoy it rather than just fighting up it..

A fine climb in a fine location. On arrival Phil commented, "I want to mow it, not climb it!" but the sea grass doesn't detract at all from the quality of the climbing. Quite committing moves to gain the niche, then great jug pulling all the way to the top. Lovely view.

Wish I had saved this route for the onsight lead but didn't have a partner for the day so had an alone mission on the crag today top rope soloed the the route great route went to the bottom again and climbed it placing the gear not immediately obvious but is there think it would be quite a bit different on lead just need a partner to go back and climb it right

Maybe it's given HVS due to being relatively high above gear for hardish move lower down? The rest is definitely VS though.
