Rockfax Description
A great route that can be climbed in one long and sustained pitch. The route is reached via the first pitch of The Hustler.
1) 5a, 20m. As for The Hustler.
2) 5a, 23m. From the belay, move back right above your previous line to reach a small right-facing flake. Climb this more or less direct to a ledge and belay.
3) 5b, 20m. Move up into the left-hand crack, and when this gets hard, span out to the right crack, and start using a combination of both to gain the steeper section where the cracks join. Hurry up this, fighting the growing pump to reach the top of the wall and belay back on spikes. It is possible to link pitches 2 and 3 into one mega-sustained pitch.
4) 30m. Traverse right across the ledge as for The Hustler P3.
5) 35m. As for Nightride P4. © Rockfax

Really good. About the same difficulty as the 3rd man.

led P1+P3, second P2 after being drenched several times by big waves and it certainly felt harder than 4c

alasdair19 12/Aug/12 Lead

hard above the P2 belay/ big ledge the crack itself is much easier

chriscarroll 20/Jul/12 AltLd O/S

That sea level traverse is sweet! and that 4c pitch is probably 5b

Lead P2+3 together, hard for the grade if done like this, but makes for an awesome pitch!

Sea level traverse for the first pitch which is graded 5a but more like 4c! Interesting second pitch graded 4c but more like 5a (which I managed to lose the route on)! Top pitch an awkward crack which I ran out of strength on! A bit of a disjointed finish, take your pick from a number of options although you're supposed to go for a 4c chimney. Long walk back to the gearing up area.

Pete Nugent 27/Apr/11 Lead

Led all 3 pitches, incl the entry traverse pitch. The tides were low, seas were calm & weather perfect.pitch. To me the 2nd pitch (allegedly 4c) was as hard as anything on the top pitch. Gear on top pitch was good. Excellent route, well chuffed! Takes a long time to get off the route & get back to the descent gully.

It was getting dark, and a piece of gear was stuck at a pumpy section so I had a take to get it out. Gutted really, as the rest was clean.... Really great route though, quite snappy rock at the bottom. Getting off the cliff is as much of an adventure as the route.
