The magnificent hanging groove in the front arete of the block gives a popular pitch. Start by climbing up on the left then pulling across to gain a short groove above the roof. Move right into the main groove and climb it.</br>Variation, E1 5a - The steep groove left of the main groove.
nice route - horrendous start!
Great route - the start could cause much hilarity!
HVS 5a if you come in from the left. E36a via direct start??? The left had variant is a pleasant E1, which would benefit from more traffic.
Second time round - I'm getting better at the start, despite a wet ledge to mantle on and being showered in spray from a high sea! Brilliant HVS, and quite strenuous unless you're canny with the bridging. What a position!
If I could give this 4 stars I would. An amazing route, bridging up and out over space on huge holds. I was still buzzing when I got back home 6 hours later! One of the best single pitches in Britain?
The start is a polished pig (avoidable way left?). The rest is great.
