A mighty challenge tackling the triple-roof-stack head on. The hardest roof at Swanage and possibly 7a. It is well protected.
1) 6c, 12m. Climb to the roof and contort through the right-hand ceiling crack to belay around the lip on threads and wires.
2) 6b, 10m. Cross the next 3m ceiling, past a large jug, into a small corner. Swing up right to a semi-hanging belay.
3) 6a, 15m. Go over the roof and up a groove in the headwall before going left to finish as for Absence Makes the Heart.

Does anybody, other than Pete Oxley, actually climb these seemingly inpossible routes?

I'm sure Martin Crocker and Dave Pickford have both repeated this.
