Rockfax Description
A fine line that takes the blank-looking wall to the left of Britomartis. Start as for Britomartis.
1) 5a, 40m. Move down and left as for Britomartis, and move up the crack of Britomartis for a couple of metres before heading out up left across a steep wall to reach the base of a steep straight crack above the arch. Move up this crack for a few metres to a line of holds that lead out left, before heading back right to gain a groove. This is followed until level with the Britomartis stance, where a traverse right leads to the belay.
2) 5a, 20m. Move back across the wall on the left to reach the main groove. Climb this past some friable and creaky holds to the top. © Rockfax

Excellent. Led P1. Never v hard, but fantastic tour of the slab. Started from ledge round the corner, prob would have been better to ab into Britomartis crack and take a stance there - otherwise a bit rope draggy, but not too bad.

Le P1 Started from low tide ledge and avoided the Britomartis crack for some distance before I decided I could do with some runners. Left the Toilers crack at an arbitrary point and traversed left past a thread to the finishing groove. Toiler P1 and Spider Wall P2 would be a good combination.

P2 was loose and stiff, 5a?

val led the main pitch, I just led the short 4c top pitch. started at hanging belay, which was very awkward to get to. if swinging around the corner on ab to do this, make sure the ab rope is very well padded at the top, or else you will end up with a knackered ab rope like mine

Charlie Low 17/Jun/16 AltLd O/S

Led second half of P1 and P2 (as one pitch). Finished up Toiler on the Sea instead of going out left.

P2. Not sure we fully stuck to the route on either pitch but it seemed to fit at the time. Tricky start then steady, steep and pumpy trucking on good holds

P1 didn't read the full description so traversed back through toiler below the stance rather than up the groove. Great route though

Awesome 1st pitch. To do it all in one would be even more amazing, but I'm not quite sure 60m doubles would stretch that far...

Deserves the E1 tick only because it seemed like 5a for the entire first pitch. Nothing very hard, but sustained 5a throughout!
