Dorte Bjerre Steensgaard 11/Aug/16 AltLd O/S

Wind and crashing waves made for a very atmosperic setting. Traversing first pitch felt quite exposed. Lead second pitch up the corner. Somehow got stuck when climbing though the top hole and had to top out over the bulge to the left. Should perhaps have tried harder. Neurotic idea of own body size in the way ?

During the traverse the rope got caught on the lip of the roof and took a few minutes to free it. Went up the left hand side of the corner without bridging across.

Fun climbing in a great situation, especially for the grade. We kept mostly to the crack just to the left of the main groove, on instructions from Andy who had the guidebook, so it looks like we have an excuse to go and do it again. After this we tried to get down to the climbs in Black Zawn but the scramble was too wet and slimy. We then went in search of Sunset Slab at the Coastguard Cliffs. We scrambled down to a pinnacle as per the guide but there was no climbing there so we scrambled back out. We should perhaps have gone a little further south.

Very sweet miniature version of Right Angle with an exposed intricate traverse to reach the corner. Possibly the climbing doesn't merit the three stars but the situation, considering the easy grade, makes it justified. An ideal first sea cliff lead.
