Rockfax Description
Although from initial impressions this line appears to be much harder than the grade, in execution it proves to be a worthwhile introduction to the rock and climbing on the Hollywood Walls. Plus, it is a very good climb in its own right. Start at a thin low flake in the steep wall just left of a right-leaning corner.
From the flake reach up over the steep wall to good holds and pull up strenuously to more good holds. Move left and up to the base of an open groove and follow this to the top on huge holds. © Rockfax

After two days of it raining constantly and being forced to just get blazed in a tent the weather finally improved enough to do some actual climbing, an exciting little sea cliff adventure with some novices.

Beautiful hot day. Water was crystal clear and still. Slightly daunting first move but easy enough once you got on with it. Lovely climb

Steep bottom section which is committing but fine once you go for it, route description in CC guide is poor - I followed the Rockfax description and topo - in my opinion crux is the exposed move up an right out of the open corner, closest I've been to taking a lead fall!

Nice climb. Hard to protect the first moves but there is a sneaky cam up and to the right if you look
