From castle car park, fp thru boat yard. At low tide easy to access both stacks, Sexton first, summit gorse not bad, with HP at far edge of gorse. Then Burrow Nose stack, accessed col from its W end then round E end to N side as per CP, up slabs, 2m scramble (awkward in descent) then grass. S side covered in dwarf blackthorn, would be a v bad route. The mainland summits both looked a serious bushwhack, but nice path between them leads to a great viewpoint for the Nose. Good value for a P28! My GPS made it P29 FWIW.RHW19/05/2018

Tump is on an isolated sea stack - not on the peninsula (which although higher at 33m only has p25m).Sea Level rocks gained at low tide down path S of ruin on peninsula tip. 2nd largest tidal range in the world on this coast-so care not to get cut off- forecast 9 metres today. We first climbed Sexton's Burrow the easy 29m stack,(p30m at low tide??) but top in dense gorse -got within 6 metres. Scrambled around to Burrow Nose Stack. A tempting 'safety line' of frayed white tape of unknown vintage 'anchored'to gorse and juniper lent courage to an easy but increasingly risky scramble up rock then steep grass up the stack. When the tape ran out we turned back not wanting to risk an unprotected grassy traverse above a drop. Explorations to the north side found an easy rock and grass scramble up, and more importantly, down again. Sunshine on the grassy top,plenty of space, no cairn.On return. from col climbed to main cliff top up slabby groove -alongside more old tape tied to iron post.Chris Pearson05/04/2016
