Rockfax Description
6a, S0, 80m. A very good circular traverse, and a fun introduction to the area. Start on the beach and head round the west tip of the Stair Hole Promontory. Continue into the West Cave at, or very near sea level, to emerge back on the beach. © Rockfax

βeta: This one climbs better if you reverse it, the moves are slightly harder heading out through the cave first ... to the sea and beyond!
