Rockfax Description
A fine route but be aware that it is the easiest way out and can feel harder in bad conditions. Best described as HS climbing in a VS situation. The wall just left of the through cave. Climb cracks in the wall to a triangular niche (historical belay). Move right out of this and follow more cracks to the top. © Rockfax

βeta: The abseil in is bloody scary if you end up over the through cave. You want to make sure the tide isn't in too far before you commit over the edge and try to stay a bit to the left when descending from the ab stake.

βeta: Quite a lot of big loose rocks in the upper section. Bottom twin cracks are almost hvs; unless you can jam.

βeta: I have bumped these up to HS to reflect the voting. For some perspective it is worth noting that this route was given Severe in 1968 and stayed that way in every guidebook until 2011/12. It also received no stars for most of that time so didn't see many ascents.
