Start by a low overhang and an iron ring on the ground. There is a difficult opening move over the roof. The wall above is still tricky. It may be a poor relation to its Swanage namesake, but it is not a bad route at all.
Interesting first move, otherwise pretty average route
Much better than the guidebook intimates, also shown in the wrong position on the topo, it starts at the foot of the talus slope above an old rusty mooring ring some 20ft left of where the topo indicates. The intial moves around the starting roof are good 5b if you are shorter than 5'7" and the whole route is a good 5, Gerry thought it was 6a!
The first move was tricky but interesting. whole route felt harder than 4 probably just me though
Difficult opening move for the short over the roof, but solid 4+ climbing beyond. Maybe a poor relation to its Swanage counterpart, but not a bad route at all.
First move more like 5+/6a - but only if you are tall and can reach the edge of the ledge - if below 5'6" then it is very much harder.
I'm just tall enough to reach the good holds and immensely enjoyed hauling myself up with no technique at all with the rope above me :) Starting a metre or so left like my leader did looked a lot more sensible, but less like silly fun.
Thought it dirty and unrewarding. One star is being too kind.
The start is tough for a F4 climber; F5b, I believe.
Bouldery start into more huge juggy thuggishness.
Nice warm up route, with an interesting start.
Hard pull to get going, and then lovely climbing on great holds
