5 pitches.

Rockfax Description
The first route climbed here and by far the most popular route on the Main Cliff. Start at the pinnacle that blocks the way leftwards to the other routes.
1) 4b, 18m. Climb the wide crack/groove on the right-hand side of the pinnacle to its top.
2) 5b, 18m. You are aiming for a ledge only 8m above you, but you have to climb three sides of a square to reach it. Start by descending from the pinnacle and traversing right across the wall and round an arete to the base of a steep groove. Climb the groove to a ledge and traverse back left to a sloping ledge.
3) 4c, 18m. Head up a short crack leading up from the left side of the ledge to reach easier ground, and continue up and right to below another groove.
4) 4b, 18m. Climb up the groove in a great position to belay at the top of the upper pinnacle.
5) 5b, 40m. Traverse right across the steep wall, and make difficult moves up to reach a thin crack. Thankfully good holds soon appear and are followed to the top. © Rockfax

Fell off the top pitch (no.5) seconding. Pumpy steep section shortly after you have traversed in from the belay. Hard move, I was pulling on a fin with my right hand and had a poor crimp for my left, feet weren't ideal and I pulled as hard as I could, screaming at the rock begging it to allow me to stay on, but it didn't. I fell off frustrated. After a minute weighing the rope, I pulled back on the rock and after some more screaming successfully managed the sequence of moves to easier territory. One more smaller section toward the top is also hard, requiring a bit of lay ack until you can reach to your right to grab hold of a very greatful jug.Cracking lead by Calum Wadsworth.

What a fantastic route! Enjoyable climbing all the way to the top. Matt strung P1 & P2 together with some cunning rope work. I followed through the bulge direct at approx 5b? P3 straightforward but scrappy, and P4 glorious jug hauling up the corner to a capacious stance. P5 is the money pitch, with a lovely committing traverse and then steep climbing on hero holds and alarmingly wobbly spikes. Superb. Led P3,5

Didn't have much daylight or tide window left after abbing off after the second pitch of Dinosaur, so decided to do this for a chilled out experience. Soloed up to the top of the flake, then Eve led the 5a pitch which is fun but totally pointless as you could just go direct to the ledge. She belayed at the left hand end of the ledge and I took it to the top in one mega pitch - just about reached the belay spike on 60m ropes and not putting much gear in on the two easy pitches. Found the crux quite hard but may be I was just tired after Dinosaur. Not that good a route but worth it for the historical interest. Thought the wide flake crack pitch was the best one. 1h 35mins from the bottom,including getting the ropes ready on the pinnacle.

Lead P1/P3. P1 - Easy climbing taken carefuly after 'Gogarth grip' induced by exposed approach. P2 - Steep and sustained traverse around corner. Very pumpy removing gear even on top-rope. P3 - Grass made a seemingly gentle scramble up to belay awkward and not so trivial P4 - Beautifully enjoyable 'a la Green Gut' slabby corner-crack. P5 - Fiddled too long removing gear and pumped out for the hardest moves. Dogged twice but it was 'seal grunting' that could be heard loudly in the cliff. Oh... the joys of wild exposure! Continued up in difficulty cause it took long before it eased off.

Done this route twice, it's really good. But why doesn't any description mention the grove on the top pitch? My partner fell off because they traversed too far right. It should be simple. Traverse right from the stance until below the obvious groove. Make a few difficult moves into the grove then climb it in a delightful position. Ignore all the stuff about thin cracks, head for the groove

Took a ~4 metre fall off the crux (top pitch) (gear slightly below my feet). Misread the sequence, got pumped and could hold on no longer. Gear all held though, & the No.4 rock that took the main impact remains....could someone return it to me please? Crux sequence seems quite long, pumpy & sustained for an E1, especially as there's no good rest for a way after (when pumped). Will come back when I am climbing better! At least there were 4 good gear placements below the crux.

Our first climb on Gogarth and James' first sea-cliff climb. Thankfully we were first on the route as it was quite a busy day. Glorious weather, sketchy approach, the odd bit of tricky route finding (on my pitches anyway). P3 was furry and scrappy but the other pitches were great! Me - P1, P3, P5 James - P2, P4

Fab's first route @ Gogarth. I gave him the hard pitch ;) We initially started on Resolution Direct but without the topo spent ages going the wrong way so changed over to a route I knew. The hard pitch seemed a lot harder this time. We climbed in thick spooky fog all day.

Don't remember a lot about this except that I wasn't that impressed; the descent was a horror show & the rock untrustworthy, but then I'd spent a lot of time climbing in Pembroke where the approaches & rock were so much better!

Climbed several times, but only because of its "classic" status. Tope pitch is worthwhile and the easy slab pitch is cool. Resolution is a much better route.
