A brilliant pitch up the centre of the soaring face. It has good gear but is strenuous and sustained. Start up the crack of Behemoth, then traverse right to take thin cracks to the fault-line. Fight through the short chimney and cruise up the rib (peg) and white headwall on pockets, to eventually exit onto a ledge.
Fantastic climbing, varied and very sustained. Lovely clean rock without a hint of looseness.
wow! fantastic from start to finish!
did this again yesterday and having now done a fair few 5b, 5c and 6a routes in swanage, i really think this deserves 5c. still superb though.
repeated this yesterday - better than i remembered - best e3 at swanage?
Sustained, intricate, varied, rewarding ... if it weren't a tad escapable in a couple of places, it might be perfect.
