Rockfax Description
A reasonably direct line, however don't worry if you stray off route, just enjoy the position. Start from the ledge in the centre of the face and climb up a crack to a diagonal break. Roughly follow the left-hand crack above then transfer to a wider crack which is followed to the top. © Rockfax

Take care with rock in higher section- a piece the size of a grapefruit came off in my hand. Still a lovely climb for newbie intro to sea cliffs.

Looks outrageously steep and blank for a VDiff from the top, but lovely easy climbing when you get on it.

Easy, you could run up and down this all day long. Great holds for hands and feet all over the place and gear wherever you want it.

Lovely route, you can pretty much wander anywhere on this slab but this route is a natural.

Care required on the abseil and top out as some loose rock in top 3metres. Great belay ledge to start from and wonderful sharp jugs up middle of the slab.
