Rockfax Description
Classic stuff that is jam-packed with good climbing. The steep wall, ramp and final groove require a variety of techniques and subtleties for success. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Superb. Start just above the step in the path at the left-hand side of the tidal platform. Amble up to a BR, then climb the fingery wall on good flakes to a horizontal slot out on the left. Make a long rockover to a big sloper well up and right. Pull up more easily, and finish up the left-trending groove.

I really enjoyed this, by the skin of my teeth through the crux and then just hanging on through the top. It sure packs a lot in and the rain coming over the top of the crag added to the atmosphere.

Unlikely move which I somehow managed. Considerable faith needed and a long reach. Not done as pictured in the guide.

Was going well till the slopping ramp. Great moves at the start. Not so good middle. And good top. Not a top 50 for me tho.

Had a couple of goes to work out the sequence but didn't have the energy left to go for the redpoint. Didn't feel soft but maybe I was tired for climbing the day befoe

Interesting climb that has tough moves top-to-bottom. The crux can be climbed in a couple of ways, one of which will feel much easier for the tall.
