Description

P1 (5.8) starts from the platform at the base of the largest left-slanting dyke [geological], heading towards the apex of the overhang above. When in doubt step right and holds should appear to allow you to pull on to the next layer of slab. After 80', belay in cracks below a large pinnacle.

P2 (5.7) moves up and left into a shallow groove. After 20' this gets easier. For the finale head right and pull round an overhang on big holds.

Location

Ding lies on the lower, seaward cliff at Bosigran - left (facing in) of the upper cliff. Follow the obvious path beneath the upper cliff leftwards, down an awkward step, then down and across grass (Sea Gully lies above) to scramble down to rocky platforms - well above the sea even at high tide.

From the top, head right then the quickest descent is down the obvious grassy Sea Gully, taking care on slabby cracks lower down - head right (looking out) to find the easiest ground.
