Square Bay

Climbs 17 – Rocktype Sandstone (hard) – Altitude ? – Faces S

Crag features

This small bay has a few worthwhile routes although the rock is of variable quality and most routes require low tides. 

A big, rather interesting-looking hole found just 50m south-east of Initiation Slabs. You get a good preview by walking either side of the square bay, and looking in.

A rockfall in 2014 has affected a number of routes here. 

 

Approach notes

Abseil from a slightly wobbly stake in the obvious boulder, awkward nuts in the boulder, or there is a more substantial boulder 10m off to the Northeast. Easy to swim in and there is DWS potential on the West face.
