Quite popular in a love or hate way. Climb the slabby pillar between the caves, an easy start leads to a precarious middle section over a slight bulge and sustained moves heading left.


A concencus of 6 climbers habitually leading 6a to 7a reckon 6a+ is the right grade for Nausicaa Nausicaa, bearing in mind other 6a/6a+ climbs on the island

A good route, but the rock is exceptionally rough, not one to fall off!

28m sustained slab isn't fun.

Beautiful intricate climb. Like Central Buttress at Avon without the polish.

28m sustained slab IS my idea of fun! Excellant route with crux in the upper half. Opinion of the team was that this was close to 6b.

Nice sloping holds and pleasant climbing. Sustained? Maybe a bit on the upper half.
Juha Olli - 21/Sep/04

Upper section is a good adrenalin trip,really good climbing but will get harder with traffic on the sloping footholds.

6a for outdoors climbers.
