The Mild West Kwortzkliff
15 Flextime

Bit greasy feeling. Watched someone catch a marlin off the Torpedo Tubes while belaying which was cool. Amazing to see the big fish do runs and leaps out of the water!

15 Raptures of the Deep

Fun route in a epic location! Climbed the line of of least resistence heading vaugly up the arete with mostly good rock. Nuts and even hexes are good.

15 Raptures of the Deep

Climbing this involved many elements of a good epic: spiders before and during the climb, abseiling into the unknown, rope (nearly) getting stuck when pulling it, chossy rock breaking up, rising tides, and finally (nearly) getting lost on the way back to the car (trying to find a shortcut) and having to beg security to wait another 5min before closing the gate. Somehow we managed to get away with nothing but our girlfriends giving us the classic "what took you so long?" speech.

On the serious side: having never been there before we thought it was hard to find the correct anchor points on Kworzkliff to abseil using the description of routes and descent notes. We found a set of ring bolts in a little cave, another set a few meters below that on the face of the cliff, and another one a couple of meters to the right of the little cave, while the route descriptions use the terms "the first, second, and third". The description of this route says to use the 'first', which we assumed was the one on the cave, but in hindsight, if we had used the ones on the cliff face it would have probably reduced a lot of the rope drag when pulling it down. It gets misleading when the description of routes 21, 22 and 23 also recommend using the 'first' set of rings when it's impossible that it is referring to the ones on the little cave.

Other things that aren't on the route description, which I think would be helpful: - length of abseil: from the little cave it was longer than 30m. We used a set of 50m half ropes and passed the middle mark by far. I would say it was around 35-40m considering the amount of rope left below me; - the end of your rope may fall into the ocean depending on the length while abseiling. When you pull it down, it will definitely fall into the ocean. Having dry treated ropes was definitely a plus; - wayfinding wasn't easy. Looking at the photo of the routes on a big screen I can see that the route climbs entirely on the right side of the 'arete', but looking at it on my phone it was hard to tell and there's no real description either. Eventually, I climbed in between this and Hook Line Sinker for a good amount of time and ended up on the top bolts of the latter. Should I consider this a first accent? The rock quality wasn't the best either, several loose flakes especially coming closer to Hook Line Sinker; - pro is also scarce at some points. I used almost two sets of cams of most common sizes and a #3 and #4, and a nut or two. Using double roupes also helped reduce rope drag coming out of the belay at the bottom;

Not sure what the etiquette here is but I'd be happy to add some of these comments in the route description.

To misquote Robert Kennedy when I first came to the point many years ago I'd see climbs like this and say why, now I say why not. Crux was grasping the shrubbery connected to the cliff by a millimetre of dirt as I'm now too inflexible to mantle the top

Now sports a fixed piece or booty as Chris forgot his nut key and was seemingly 'too hot and sweaty' to hang around to retrieve. Left insitu as it is probably similar vintage to the rocks surrounding it. But one tap with a nut key and its yours
