400m, 2 pitches. The spectacular ridge at the far Eastern end of the island, attached to Tory at a huge arch connected to the Anvil. Steep grassy slope on one side and a sheer drop tot he Atlantic on the other. A mix of scrambling, scary grass walking and some technical climbing.
Requires at least one pitch of approx. Severe climbing to surmount the summit at the end, climbing an obvious corner on sound rock. (other routes to the summit are possible)
Depending on your line you may wish to pitch other sections. Take care with loose rock and nesting birds.
There are two pinnacles along the ridge that can be climbed but can also be avoided.
Return by abseil and retracing your step. Bring tat/cord for abseils.
One 60m rope is sufficient. Allow 3 - 4 hours - doable in a day trip to the island.
