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 - keep away if it is remotely rough.
1) A1, 15m. Drop down and follow the sidewall 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 blowhole - 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
