Rockfax Description
The eye-catching rightward exit from the sea-level cave of the back wall is rarely attempted. The often-greasy first pitch has been the scene of a few epics. Start in the cave, which can be gained by an abseil or via an awkward traverse from Right Angle.

1) 5c, 16m. From the ledge, climb two steep, offset corners (aid, if at all damp) and pull out rightwards onto the open face to an awkward, hanging belay.
2) 5a, 17m. Climb the wall rightwards to the left-leaning corner/groove-line, and follow this to a protruding ledge and belay.
3) 10m. Finish up the corner. © Rockfax

Rock on 1st pitch was in rare, dry condition. (Wouldn't fancy it in the wet!) Fantastic sea cliff route and 1st day climbing with G.B. for ~15 years. Great day.

Led pitch 1. Bit greasy. Climbing feels fine for 5c unless you kick out your only gear...

I led 1st pitch, Neil 2nd pitch. Well chuffed to do this. Conditions were good despite it being midday and an out-going tide on a cloudy day.

The first pitch out of the cave was damp and felt like verglass. Wait until evening and the sun comes round to enjoy it properly.
