A top crack climb that is both fun and pumpy. Keep an eye out for the bolt hidden within the crack.

Closest you will get to a real crack in the area. White grit next the sea! Top route and well worth the 2 stars. Harder if you are short as its tough to see and reach a hidden clip!

Andy is right, this route is much easier for the taller climber (possibly 5C - 5C+ if you're a six footer). Easyto miss the bolt inside the crack just below the crux, but such a hold-rich route that it never feels dodgy.

agree with all the above

Nah, I'm 5 foot 9 with really short arms and found it a doddle.

I'm rubbish, too.

good route to well and truly finish the day on.

careful with the hidden clip: when under tension, the rope can pull the crabs on your quickdraw so that the crab is touching rock on either side, which risks that the crab either breaks or your gate gets pushed open. solution maybe to use a sling?

Pleasant thuggery up the gaping crack.

Brilliant!
