Loved it - easy 4 in a cracking location. The approach down to the boulders is far more difficult than the routes, especially in poor footwear with a bagful of kit - ooops.

Splashy belay at high tidy. Not very suitable if the leader is very heavy as there is a gap between wall and the boulder you belay from. A sharp pull towards the wall may cause an unwanted dip in the sea

A few patches that seem to have no handholds, but it's a slab so that doesn't matter. If the tide's high, you might get splashed.
