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

first climb wth my day bag on my back. walk out involves climbing along the ridge of the first tripple boulder stone when the tide has turned. The belay bolt on the top of the crag is becomming rusty and may soon need changing
