A brilliant climb. Varied, well protected and in a remote location. Start at the back of the bay at a cave.
A brilliant route, one of it's best at the grade at Swanage.However, when I climbed it on the 18/6/00 there was no belay stake at the top. I had a very worrying time belayed to a rotten fence post and the grass (!) about twenty yards off to the side of the route top out. Luckily my second didn't fall off!!!!
Superb route, but still no stake.. slings attached to a collection of thorny shrubs above the top seemed pretty solid. Climbed on 10/09/00
Brilliant, made me take up painting!
Brilliant route. Did it in late evening and had to search around for ages to find the belay stakes, but found them eventually, just at the edge of the thorny stuff. I thought the first pitch was actually harder than the second - what should have been the crux was fine once I committed to it.
Good climbing but very dirty - why haven't more people been climbing this route?
Enjoyable route at the grade, but agree about the pong and assorted remains at the stance. Good stakes right above now, but rt hand one is a bit buried
Two stakes at top, a nesting gull half way up and a shipwreck at the base.
Good old Swanage HVS fun!
