Feeling out the moves on Rat Up a Drainpipe

Description 

This is the biggest and the best climbing area on the island with many good routes. Like most of the other areas along the south coast, much of the area is tidal.

The rock quality varies, but it isn't too hard to find good routes on good rock.


Getting There 

From La Corbiere walk east along the cliff path. Take a path on the right which leads down a scree slope to the bottom. Follow this and continue to reach the climbing areas.

Feeling out the moves on Rat Up a Drainpipe

Rat Up A Drainpipe 5.11a 6c 22 VII+ 22 E3 5c Europe : United Kingdom : ... : Sunset Bay
Start up the thin shallow cracks. You get some good small gear at the tops of these cracks.With the gear placed launch out on a lonely lead, since the gear will only protect the first 40 feet of climbing.Small crimps and shallow cracks lead up and over a small overlap then more crimping continues on up directly to the crux moves 6 feet below the niche. Its only 6 feet, but it has the potential of feeling longer than that......[more]   Browse More Classics in International
