UKC

Rockfax Description
A majestic pitch of flawless quality. Take lots of wires. Start beneath the disjointed crack-system on the left side of the slab.
Move up to the widening of the crack at the overlap. Just above the overlap, make a long step left into another good crack. Follow this, and where it fades, move right to a thin crack and follow this to the top. Sustained. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
A truely fine pitch following the thin crackline towards the left side of the face. Boldly climb upto the biggest crack at the slim overlap and make a move left to another good finger crack. Follow the crack and thinner continuation to the top. A major foot pump-out!
The face is tidal.

βeta: What a piece of rock. I dont know any other rock quite like this. Wonderful route, wonderful climbing. Having only seconded this I would like to go and repeat this. Note to prospective climbers from low tide it was rightly 2 to 2.5 hours climbing ability before your belayer gets wet feet. The traverse between cracks was heart stopping moment but lots of fun for the lanky; not sure what the small sizes would do?

βeta: North w faced so the crag is mostly in the shade and takes time drying. Had to start in wet condition. Gear is mostly good.
