The groove left of the arete is now adequately bolted, but it still has a sizeable fall potential.

Watch out! a friend of mine took a substantial fall off of the crux. It's a bit run out, very sharp and fingery and the fall is onto the top of the lower bulge.

Good technical climbing, especially on the crux but it has real ankle breaking potential. Of course I didnt read the guidebook comment!

"undoubtedly done before".
What is the point of this comment unless there is some evidence? This is almost as bad as the throwaway "Previous top-rope problem"

You get the feeling D.Cook was running out of bolts! Tough crux, high in the grade, made harder by the height of the hard moves above the bolts.

Very badly bolted

Very nice climb, mainly for the environment so near to the sea. Only, a little scary but well protected. Attention to the pain in the fingers!

you would NOT want to fall off the crux.

Charecter building stuff and no broken ankles to date!

Crux moves are painful. The climbing above is much more pleasant.

Nice route, gets your heart beating ... not often you get scared on a sports climb ... BRILLIANT!!

Brilliant route. Long run out but didn't hurt the fingers in my book! Annoying lower off. Kept swinging to the right when trying to de-gear! mates found it funny tho

Poor bolting in my book, unnecessary risk of broken ankles or worse.
Brian Wilkinson - 23/May/08

Character building. The guidebook warning helped.
