Rockfax Description
A great, technical pitch. Start 5m right of a large corner, beneath a huge roof at the fault-line. Climb a crack to a ledge at the base of a thin crack in the smooth wall below the roof. Climb the thin crack past a peg to the roof, traverse rightwards to below a corner and climb this strenuously to another corner. Move left around the arete to join and finish more easily up Lightning Wall. © Rockfax

FA. Richard Crewe, K.Winkworth 07/Jan/1968.

βeta: Crag swag left just after mid height break. I loved that red nut, if retrieved, please continue to love my nut by placing it in as many cracks as possible.

βeta: Superb! The benchmark Swanage E1? Lead on a previous outing and endured a full on brawl with the corner - didn't fancy a repeat so took the obvious well travelled line 2m to the right. Similar grade just less....brawl-y? Big up Crewe and Winkworth for the FA - big line for the day no question!

βeta: Very enjoyable, exciting posittion, interesting climbing, though I think the comment about bucaneer is the wrong way around, bucaneer is more... atmoshpheric.Or maybe it was just the we had a beuatiful sinset when we did bucaneer. Both routes are really awesome.
