Quick heads up - 

Climbing Blind is on BBC4 at 9pm tonight and will be available on catch up soon afterwards. It is really good and worth a watch, several non-climbers I know who have seen it also enjoyed it.

The bit on now, climbing down to the foot of the sea-stack...why not abseil?

I've not been there, but it is more than a rope-length, and would possibly need three or four abseils. This might take longer than the very long walk down that they had, particularly if they were the first people to try it and would have to find the anchors.

In reply to Cake:

You're quite correct, sorting out abseils would be worse than the 'path'. There would be loose rock to contend with as well.

I certainly found the descent more scary than the climb. My palms were sweating last night as I watched them going down ....

They commented that they had done worse. I don't think that I have; it's a grade more serious than the Gogarth descent.

Funnily, that Gogarth descent immediately came to mind.

 I have done some big abs at Lundy with 2 ropes tied together which seemed to work ok. Not been to the OMoH so it was just a possible option for more security when descending with a blind person.
