A fantastic climb on great rock a under climbed UK classic. An excellent airy pitch to start with a big sea running and a gale blowing. Led pitch 2 which thought was easily worth E1 as per the 2013 guide and it was with some relief to make it to the belay without it raining properly (some rain on P1 almost did not start).

Led pitch 1&3. Amazing route. Crux move tricky, useful to check out some of the foot holds when you are the belay stance at the start of the pitch.

You don't fully appreciate what "awkwardly" means until you've led P2 of this. Great route. Should be in Hard Rock.

Damp rock made grips and jams tough to hold, properly raining by the end. I held on to gear whilst getting other gear out!

Took a while to find the right cliff but good route! Led P2, some greasy/guano-covered holds but only one hard move, gets E1 5a/b in CC guidebook

Lead p2. A bit of a fight in weird body positions

P2 all too short so ran it together with P3 - not recommended. Sorry Mick!

Led P2. Fabulous line and exposure. Felt tricky as rock was a bit soapy, and maybe I didn't jam properly.

Amazing line! Brilliant traverse over the zawn to start, and hard, exposed second pitch, but very well protected. Accidentally added an insitu cam on the second pitch though...

Robin Woodward ?/Mar/14 AltLd

Lead 1 & 3, Not normally a fan of exposure, but lovely on this climb, particularly the P1 traverse. P3 felt like an out of condition Scottish Winter climb!

Dogged on the (wet) crux pitch which takes drainage, I discovered. An excellent, full-on route.

Lead 2nd pitch. First was a nice traverse, second was hard, greasy, exposed and terrifying. All in all a great route.
