33m, 2 pitches. An intimidating route with lots of exposure on its second pitch. Start under the perfect groove on the edge of the bay. 1) 4c, 15m. Climb the groove to a hanging stance at the fault-line. 2) 5b, 18m. Move up to the roofs then make an airy traverse left to the arete which is then followed to the top. Intimidating. © ROCKFAX

Sea was too rough to get to the routes we wanted, and this looked fun. loose and dirty enough to class as esoterica, but fun climbing.
