Rockfax Description
A fine crack climb which is well worth seeking out. Start up the lower wall at a vertical sentry-box of a crack. Climb the lower crack to a large ledge (possible belay if the sea threatens). The substance of the climb is the fine slanting crack above, follow this throughout and belay well back on a stake. © Rockfax

βeta: First HVS must of put over 20 pieces of gear in, my harness was very light by the end and it was dark. Lovely route though.
