4 pitches.

Rockfax Description
Astounding positions and superb climbing combine to give one of the region's great climbs. The route follows a severely overhung diagonal line across the cliff, starting at sea level on the tip of the headland. The positions are serious for both leader and second and in anything but good, dry conditions the climbing on the third pitch can feel insecure. Calm sea conditions are essential if the route is attempted at high tide. Start on a sea-level ledge at the tip of the headland.
1) 4b, 20m. Climb around the headland onto the west face just above the high-tide mark. Move up a small slab before moving right below a little overhang and up again to a stance on a slab at the base of a left-leaning corner.
1a) 4c, 20m. An alternative first pitch, if the tide is very high, is to climb up and then traverse a steep pocketed wall right to a good ledge on the edge of the west face, before traversing down and right to the stance.
2) 5b, 10m. Move right and down via a difficult move (back rope for second) and traverse right, either high or low, to a stance at a wide crack in the corner.
2a) 5b, 20m. An alternative high-level version of the previous pitch is possible, for conditions when the sea is a bit choppy.
3) 5b, 20m. A wild pitch. Move up to the roof and then move down slightly before heading out across the steep wall and up to regain the roof. Continue right beneath the roof, passing a protruding fin of rock, to gain a steep hanging slab. Cross this, and a small corner, before making a steep move up to better holds, small spike. Move right and swing down to a stance on a projecting foot ledge.
4) 5a, 18m. Pull through the small overhang to the base of the large right-trending corner and move out right and up onto the wall to a small ledge. Finish up the wall. Belay well back. A scramble up the cracks on the left regains the ridge. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
A regional classic, taking an improbable line under the huge roofs of Carn Gloose. The climbing is not particularly hard for E1, but the setting is serious enough to make escape difficult. Both members of the party should be competent at the grade. 4 pitches: 4b, 5a/b, 5b, 5a

Tim Bevan 15 Sep AltLd What a route! Feels really out there, could easily become overwhelming if you weren't expecting it. Fascinating black rock, very grippy when dry but becomes super greasy as soon as it's wet, from sweat or otherwise. Must have used more chalk on this route than I have used on all the routes I've done in the last two years, although not owning a chalk bag may have had something to do with that. I'd planned to lead the downclimb and last pitch but Dave somehow traversed straight over to the top of the corner, avoiding the need for the downclimb. Great chest-jam on P3 if you need a no hands rest!

DaveThexton 15 Sep AltLd Enjoyed more than Dream, even with the 'grease'. Unintentionally linked pitches 1 and 2 and then belayed a little higher than the guide suggested but the line felt logical and there was reasonable gear throughout. Probably missed out on the scary downclimb as a consequence (no complaints).

Anna didn't find much good gear at the start of the P2 descent so I left a nut at the belay to back-rope off. The third pitch was like DOWH on steroids. Some wild moves over nothing at times.

Paul Sagar 24 Jun, 2018 AltLd β What an adventure. First, we went to the wrong crag. Then when we made it to the right crag, we were third in a queue - behind Diana from the Orange House course, who I met in December! We waited around a long time before abseiling in. The first team seemed to be taking a long time, so we gave Diana's team an extra half an hour, after she cleared the first pitch, before heading off. I got round the corner on the lead of the first pitch...and Diana was still on the first belay. I hung around for a bit and chatted; turns out her leader had taken nearly an hour to work out the down climb section. Ho Hum. During this period, the first party had decided to bail...by flagging down passing kayakers, giving them their gear, and jumping into the sea in their undies. (CUMC lads, apparently. Felicity and Murray later found this hilarious.) Ended up eventually belaying Guy over to me, and then we just moved straight through the terrifying down climb, which given that I was seconding, was basically a DWS with gear on. (Actually the moves are quite easy when you know where you're going - but my palms were greasing up just looking at what I was going to have to do whilst sitting on the belay.) We waited around a long time under the belay of P3, which Guy eventually led like a beast; we didn't pay enough attention to the guidebook and he tried to go direct, which was nails. I can only claim the flash, as seeing Guy and Diana fall off the false start, I knew how to avoid the really nasty slippy non-holds. Top of P3 was utterly magnificent, more exposure than a bulldog's testicles. Led P4, which was also superb. With all the waiting around, it took us about 5 and a half hours to finish the route, only about 2 of which were actually spent climbing. But possibly the best route I've ever climbed, so definitely worth it. If you're in the area, don't even hesitate - get on it.

CameronH 23 Jun, 2018 AltLd O/S Led p2 and 4 - what a route! P1 felt very hard for 4b, making for an intimidating start given we knew it would only get harder. I took my time figuring out the downclimbing moves at start of p2 but weren't actually too bad, then second half of the pitch was good climbing with great exposure, although the slab felt a bit scary, especially as the rock was greasy. Third pitch incredible, just crazy climbing in an awesome position, and p4 was really nice too. One of my favourite routes ever!

davkeo 22 Jun, 2018 AltLd O/S We wanted adventure and we certainly got that. Started what we thought was the route but turned out to be something or nothing at all. Anyway we did 2 pitches of that (some of it bold & slimey) before it dawned on me that we were more than a little wrong. After some unroped investigations I found the route & went almost to the 2nd belay just to confirm. By the time I got back Anni was half asleep in the sun but with not too much persuasion we re-geared up & got going. I am very glad we did because the correct route is utterly fantastic. One of the best of this type Iv done. Probably the best E1 in fact. Thanks to our misadventures the tide was now bang on. Sweet. I linked p1&2 (Excellent. I took the lower line on p2 which is awesome) to make up some lost time & to leave Anni with the real gem pitch 3. Wild, exposed & with superb positions, p3 has it all. P4 was also good & enjoyable with more broken rock in places & the usual loose stuff near the top out but it’s fine. Think ‘Dream of White Horses’ but harder. A must do. Would make a grand long DWS.

alexm198 8 Jul, 2017 AltLd G/U Sopping wet and therefore utterly desperate feeling! First and fourth pitches were largely fine, second pitch quite greasy and third pitch phenomenally wet and insecure. A very impressive lead from Matt on P3. I pinged out of the slimy roof underclings at the start of P3 when my right foot greased off a hold - ended up dangling worryingly close to the sea and had to climb back round to regain the stance (so seeing as I then had to start the pitch again I've put it as G/U not dogged). I'm sure it would be a fantastic route in dry conditions but it was a bit of a horror show in the wet! Climbing aside, it's a cool route with lots of atmosphere and intimidation - DoWH's evil twin brother. Led P2,4.

Rob Moorcroft 2 Jun, 2016 2nd Got to the start of the climb just before high tide (around 3:30pm), coming across two guys, both called Matt. They had arrived first, with the mention of "well, at least we have some company in case anything goes wrong". After waiting at the belay, Matt said that he hadn't payed out slack for almost an hour, so we had to check up on Matt. I dutifully put Richard on belay so he could investigate. It transpired that some horrendous rope drag had resulted in both Matt, and Matt, having the other on belay and holding the dead rope wondering why the other wasn't climbing! Richard managed to sort out the rope drag issues so Matt could retreat to the safety of the ledge. Both Matts ascended their abseil rope, after taking the decision to attempt the climb on another day. Now, it was our turn. Fortunately our chance encounter with Matt, and Matt, meant we were delayed just enough to do the low tide variation. Having anchored myself in with feelings of excitement mixed with apprehension, I watched Richard leap across the rock with a beaming smile, rearing to go after our previous delays. Once Richard had hopped around the corner, my thoughts drifted to what the route had in store for us. The route was absolutely spectacular. Superb moves on high quality rock, in a stunning position. Left the first piece of gear in on the second pitch because of the mind goblins telling me about the swing I would take if I were to fall upon removing my gear. Richard, unphased and putting his MIA skills into practice carefully traversed back to remove the gear. The third pitch was wild and bold and had the added excitement of darkness closing in. We were rewarded with a (relatively speaking) straightforward pitch, topping out with the sun setting and a very firm handshake.

Fortunately our chance encounter with Matt, and Matt, meant we were delayed just enough to do the low tide variation. Having anchored myself in with feelings of excitement mixed with apprehension, I watched Richard leap across the rock with a beaming smile, rearing to go after our previous delays. Once Richard had hopped around the corner, my thoughts drifted to what the route had in store for us. The route was absolutely spectacular. Superb moves on high quality rock, in a stunning position. Left the first piece of gear in on the second pitch because of the mind goblins telling me about the swing I would take if I were to fall upon removing my gear. Richard, unphased and putting his MIA skills into practice carefully traversed back to remove the gear. The third pitch was wild and bold and had the added excitement of darkness closing in. We were rewarded with a (relatively speaking) straightforward pitch, topping out with the sun setting and a very firm handshake.

nickdonohue 3 Aug, 2014 AltLd A brilliant adventure; very intimidating when you turn the corner, but it is surprisingly amenable technically. We did the high variation of pitch 1 (not by intention it just seemed the obvious way to go) and then pitches 2,3 and 4 as per original description. However, a rockfall has altered the end of the low variation of pitch 1. We saw the team after us climb this way (so it is possible) but it may be a bit harder now. Also (as their leader orginally did before he realised he had overshot the 1st belay) it is possible (and may be more logical) to continue traversing at this lower level and go straight to the 2nd belay. i.e. run the old pitches 1 and 2 together.

It looks like there has been a rockfall below the belay stance at the end of P1. We took the high line which seemed fine but a group after us came through low and seemed to miss the stance altogether ending up below the belay point. Having not done this before I don't know what has changed.

1poundSOCKS 29 Jul, 2014 AltLd O/S We abseiled in, pulled the ropes, and got confused. I was planning to lead the 5b downclimb (P2), but Rich got lost and ended up on the belay for P3. He kindly (???) offered the lead of the 'wild' 5b pitch, which was nice and damp, but I didn't want spoil his fun (and get us benighted/killed/wet), so I declined. I then led P4, or most of P4 because Rich missed the belay again. A serious route for both, make sure leader and second are competent at the grade, but also great fun if you are. A pint of shandy in the Gurnard's Head afterwards and I just about managed to drive us back to the campsite. Memorable day.

Misha 17 May, 2013 AltLd O/S Amazing, five stars, best E1 I've ever done! Total commitment on a devious line with insane space walking positions. Viktor took the higher line on P1 after deciding that what turned out to be the lower line looked too hard. I led P2, which meant Viktor got the exciting downclimb, fortunately there was a small cam to protect it. This time I took the upper line after deciding the lower line looked too hard! A good technical 5b sequence ensued. Viktor got the wild pitch, which was interesting to second. In his words, the little downclimb to the belay was 'the whipped cream on the mashed potatoes' - a Swedish saying meaning OTT! I led the easier escape pitch. A real sea cliff experience. It rained while we were on it but it stayed dry, apart from some holds that we're damp anyway! Deafening noise from the swell hitting the rocks opposite the cliff but underneath the cliff it was sheltered from the NE wind, so at least we didn't get splashed! With Viktor on the BMC international meet. Simply brilliant. Should be E2 for the commitment and the crazy situations.
