At UKC we are all climbers and we understand the strong urge to be outdoors as the weather is finally improving. Please proceed with caution though.

24m.

Rockfax Description
The line of the massive holes; brilliant. This route will get you laughing, guaranteed! From the lower, left end of the traverse in, climb up to and into the first tube/hole feature. Once you've hung gaily out of the first window, climb up to the second one, and repeat the experience. Joking aside, climb the final wall on deep slots to a solid exit. Can be soloed at 6a+ S1. © Rockfax

Bruise Apprentice 27 Aug, 2018 Lead O/S The most bonkers thing I've climbed in quite a while. Built a belay at the first high ledge and brought Louise up as the sea was coming in really fast. The awkward moves to enter the tube put you quite far above your protection.

Elizabeth Allen 10 Aug, 2017 2nd O/S Brilliant fun with Luke and James. I came up last with the rucksack secured to my harness with a sling. Dropped the bag before entering the hole and then pulled it through and threw it out the hole at the top. The finish is really cool too. 3*

pebbles 3 Jun, 2011 2nd completely unique - a real giggle if you like squirming through holes. move up into tube is awkward, with gear below you. Can be unclimbably wet and slithery in mornings - wait till sun comes round, and you have about 3 hours after tide turns .
