Bolt Tail offers schist climbing in a location which is particularly beautiful on a sunny day. Big seas should be avoided and a visit must be carefully timed to the tide. Protecting schist takes skill and perseverance but most of the routes can be made reasonably safe. Tricams, hexes and skinny slings are useful additions to a standard rack. The rock can be snappy but with sensible hold selection this shouldn't be a problem.
From Malborough follow signs to Hope Cove. Either follow the coast path W, or coasteer in the same direction (Grade III with a singulary taxing patch of V) to a semi-island/reef called "The Bury Stone". The descent lies down a gully just S of some large boulders between the stone and the cliff.
