This impressive cliff is one of the best on the island and both routes described are well worth climbing. This information is now old and more routes may have been climbed. Pegs were used for some belays and the condition of these is unknown!
The face round the corner now has some harder routes which give long adventurous routes on rock that is at time disconcertingly soft...
The easiest approach is from the WT station car park and along the cliff top path which cuts across a headland and emerges facing the climbs. From the path, scramble down a steep grassy slope to a large rock strewn platform (start of Picador).
For the harder routes abseil in. There are abseil points at the top of the cliff (hard to find), and then further abseil points/belays at the top of the routes (the top of the cliff above these is loose). Abseil down to a pleasant ledge just above sea level. Before pulling your ropes be aware this is a daunting crag to try on-sighting at (although it is possible to escape by coasteering round the corner to the right to a grassy scramble back up to the cliff top).
