The sea nose is tidal. Access is either by a scary grass ridge to the north, or an abseil down the line of Upside Downies (or at low tide, by descending to the south and walking back round the sea nose).

The routes from Bobalouie through to Flatulent Alien did not have any birds on them this year and in all likelihood this is always the case. The wall with X-Crack and Nighthawk did not have any birds nesting on it but there was the odd fulmar on the ledges at the top and negotiations to pass may be necessary. The wall with Paranormal and Roof Roof on it has martins nesting in the cracks of the routes, fulmars and gulls on the ledges and puffins somewhere in the bank above. This wall is probably best left for late or early in the year. Nest debris is not really a problem after the nesting season though.|

There are lots of nesting birds at this crag, including puffins and fulmars. Take this into account when choosing routes in the nesting season. A magical crag!
