Begin just to the right of Meg's Got Leukaemia. A very enjoyable companion route, although the start is a little dirty.
A really dirty and pumpy start gives way to an excellent pitch from then on. Warm up first, then go for it!
Filthy low down with some good sized loose blocks waiting to drop onto your belayer. A few independent moves follow before heading off into Megs... for the bulk of the `good` climbing. The lower off is perfecly positioned above a ledge to shred your rope on the lower. If you still fancy it, take a long sling for the 2nd bolt to reduce drag on the way up and rope shreddage on the way down. Bag of...
Have to disagree - thought this was an excellent, independent route, only a lttle bit grubby at start
chossy and loose at bottom with clips from rocking blocks, lovely!
Pulled a solid looking hold off onto my face low down, plenty of obviously loose holds in the vicinity. Good climbing higher up though. Could do with a clean up with a crowbar.
Did this route as my warm up today. Almost killed my belayer on our first climb when I broke off a large chunk of rock above the second bolt. It just missed his head. I got a good close-up of it though as I plummeted towards him. Not exactly impeccable rock!
There is quite often a seagull nest in Aug/Sept just before the LO. Beware as you may come face to face with a gull chick as I did today at the last break which will end up with both you and the chick becoming rather scared.
Really good route, probably cleaner now, but beware of the gull droppings on the ledge below the lower off.
Don't know what all the fuss is about!
As per 2009, one large fluffy chick and parent in situ yesterday: best avoided for another month or two?
