One of the Culm Coast's greatest lines - both intimidating and sustained. A good number of cams is needed. Start below the steepening corner on the left of the face.</br>Follow the corner past an awkward initial section to below the smooth-walled upper corner. Climb the sustained corner-crack to the small upper overhang, pull over this to reach the top just above.

A stunning line that offers committing climbing up a parallel-sided corener crach that leads to an exposed but well-protected finale. When I did the route the best protection solution proved to be alternating two large-sized friends (3.5 to 4). The final moves are 'out there' - a bit like the traverse on the first pitch of Erocia at Pentire Point - just great! A route that's best done with tide just about to wash your second away..

superb very long pitch - sw answer to "Great north road"

Brilliant and amenable climbing. My second had to do it without her left hand as she'd broken a finger the day before. Ignore the CC guide comments about it being run out early on.

A massive and wonderfull pitch. Make sure you take extra extenders and large gear.
