Rockfax Description
The best line on the North West Face. Start at the appealing crack-line 20m to the left of the edge of the face.
Start up the initially wide section of crack to a ledge at 4m and then follow the corner-crack and chimney above to the top. © Rockfax

Climbed 2 hours and 45mins after low tide as the sea was getting more violent. Lots of squealing and swearing at Mr Duggan to go faster!

Waves bigger and sea rougher than we thought they were, got rather damp. Great fun

Apparently when you think the tide is going out but it is actually coming in with a big swell, this is an "heuristic error". I call it getting completely wet and slightly frightened. Still, I expect the the climb would be really good if it wasn't covered in sea water ...

Jess flawlessly laybacking the crack was watched in amazement by both me and a seal

Led it but put a prussik on the ab rope for the offwidth crack as a precaution. Did it as a layback which was hard work.

A great jamming crack, I managed to get in the crack most of one leg and whole arm, removing them was fun.

Good lead by Hamish-fast lead out in order to get to the top of the crag before the tide came in.

Crux is a poorly (i.e. not) protected offwidth - good lead from Joe
