A short rising left to right traverse. Start just left of Love on the good hand holds before the rock deteriorates. Feet up on the sandy lower section of Love, not on the easy blocks to the left. Pull across the break hands below the top all the way and finish up The Prow.

Start as for Alright Now but traverse down the break keeping feet off the easy pink rock below the sweet stuff. Drop around the lower arete to a junction with Black Liquorice and finish up the Superdirect.

Sit start hands and feet on the left wall of the Prow all the way.

As for BL but moving to the right of the arete to finish across the overhang. Feet smearing right wall at the top.

No recourse to right wall with feet. Straight through the overhang with both feet and hands from the mid point of BL. Brilliant.

FA: Kai Seth Robertson, 21 Mar

From the cave sit start, hand traverse the full length of the break around the arete left and up the wall at it's end. No feet on the pale block around the left end.

The sharp arete to the right of BL taken on it's left side.

The second small bay to the right of Peace has some sound(ish) rock to the right of the deep, low cave at the back. From a sit start under a round boss of gritty rock pull on and move continually left and up to finish by matching hands on the obvious clean square ledge just under the loose chossy top. Drop or downclimb. I woouldn't bother with the easy but deadly top.

Oh, how low can we get. At high tide and when sheer desperation prevails. When the days are short and windows of opportunity brief. When life seems otherwise meaningless and you have no hair left to pull out. This rising right to left traverse changes every time it's climbed. It falls eagerly apart, joining the pebbles on the beach below. Strict rules apply. Feet high hands low. Now go home and do some baking or something!
