Unknown climber leading Dark Power P1


A brilliant, exposed route taking a diagonal line from the ledge on the seaward side into the depths of the zawn and emerging via an unlikely hand traverse and crack.

P1, 18m, 5b.
From the tidal ledge, follow twin cracks up and leftwards to an overlap. Pull up into a left-facing corner and then traverse leftwards into a prominent groove which is followed to a thread and nuts belay.

P2, 23m, 5b.
Pull up and left from the belay then swing steeply leftwards on good holds. Continue up to a line of jugs traversing further left. One stiff move at the end of the traverse gains easier ground to finish.


Starts form the tidal ledge at sea level on the South side of the zawn.


Varied rack of nuts and cams.
