Crag features

This crag is split in two by an easy section of rock which has the blowhole which gives the crag it's name. Routes can only be climbed near low tide - about 2 hours either side of low water on a spring for the western (Soapy) area.

The blowhole starts to work about 2 hours after low water on a rising tide depending on swell.

Approach notes

No bird restrictions. Park as for Gull Zawn and walk down the valley with the drystone wall east of La Congrelle. Scramble down on the eastern side of the stream, the first climbs are in the back of the bay just west of the stream ('Soapy' area), the rest are round to the east through the arches.
