The long corner in the centre of the face is one of the classic climbs of its grade in Britain; it does get busy though. Climb the corner to a ledge at half-height (possible belay). Continue up the corner above, passing the small overhang on the left.
At low tide, an alternative and wonderful approach can be made across the bay by descending as for Gun Cliff which requires a short abseil from solid rings (possible to use and retrieve your climbing ropes if necessary). Once down the walk across to Mowing Word is spectacular and you can even go through the huge sea tunnel. You still need to traverse the breaks to get to the base of the groove. © Rockfax
