A worthy adventure for climbers of any grade, this climb gets you into some wild places and spectacular positions!

P1) (15 m) Start in the very back of a sea cave evidently formed along a fault plane, and climb the steep corner on its left side. Near the top of the left wall step left around the corner and belay at a stance (thread).

P2) (7 m) From the belay traverse left out of the cave on the world's biggest jug rail. Step further left onto the face and climb a few meters up to a niche to belay.

P3) (10ish m) Climb juggy cracks to the right of the belay to reach a grassy saddle. Belay at a stake well back from the edge or from a block on the rocky knob up to the right.


From the base of the Crithmum corner traverse the wall to the right (high tide) or downclimb to a platform on the right (low tide) to reach a tall and narrow cave. Walk to the back of the cave and downclimb into another passage that leads to the sea and the Star Gate area. Start the climb in the corner at the back of this passage.


Small-medium nuts, threads, medium-large cams.
