A great face climb with plenty of good climbing.
Not a great face climb. Jug romp to crux (long reach) then shitty loose flake to dusty, friable crap shelly rock.
when we repeated this a few years ago we thought it one of the better 6a+/6bs on the island (and we did almost all of them that trip!)
Completely disagree with Ben, but then he thinks Bouys Will Be Buoys and Portland Heights are boring. I guess if you like long varied routes this is a gem, if you like short desperate technical routes then ok, it wouldnt qualify for 2 stars.
It remember this route being good but not THAT good. There are better 6b's in Wallsend Cove...
Lovely climb! The crux is quite a balancy move with a sidepull for the righthand while bringing your feet up and reaching for a shallow, but good, pocket with the left hand. There is a good hold above this that isnít obvious from below! Hard F6b but then I am shit at anything that requires delicate footwork and balance!
