The guidebook descriptions are rather difficult to follow - there has been rockfall since they were written. We have recently cleaned and reclimbed all the routes (winter 05 -06) and the topo is our best guess at what is or was what. We have also added a few new lines. The pinnacle takes no drainage or seepage and is very quick to dry. If the wind is northerly or easterly, it can be a suntrap, making it a good winter venue. Descent is by abseil from an insitu rope sling (replaced December '05). Inaccessable for 2 or 3 hours around high tide.

A really good venue which probably deserves a few more stars.
