50m, 3 pitches.

Rockfax Description
This popular but serious undertaking delves into the deep zawn at the western limits of The Promenade. Calm seas are essential for the first pitch - if it is remotely rough then keep away.
1) A1, 15m. Drop down and follow the side wall of the zawn just above the water, pulling on fixed threads and nuts to gain a rock bridge at the back of the zawn.
2) 4b , 15m. Climb the dark chimney above on good holds, until you are spat out of the blow hole, belay immediately. Lots of slings for threads needed.
3) 4b , 20m. Traverse awkwardly right to the arete, where a ledge leads right to easy ground. © Rockfax

βeta: Next team please take some more 5-6mm cord and a knife to replace some of the threads.

βeta: Excellent fun ! A1- is about right for the first pitch, all the threads are quite small (narrow tape or rope around 5mm)...might be worth taking a few with you to leave behind. The second pitch is a jug fest, as Rob says, take loads of slings for threads. Overall really entertaining, the climbing is straight forward, but earns VS as it is very committing
