A Subluminal classic with masses of atmosphere. Start by the bad step in the ledge. Classy, open climbing up the groove, finishing either left or right.


A definite must on Subluminal for anyone wanting to try a good S as opposed to something like First Corner which is horrid (should be VDiff (0)). Second Corner is stylish and makes you feel like an E1 climber. It lends itself to good gear, except the last few moves which run out but are fairly easy to climb. Makes for a great final commitment.

Really good challenging S 4a, especially with the start being over the 'bad step'! Good fun and perfect gear. Highly recommended.

Did this whilst the sea was rough and it was very cold. The bottom third of the route was soaked and slippery. Personally thought this was more challenging than first corner.
