details on approaching the wringapeak:
From Woody bay, the traverse to the headland is mostly easy walking and takes around 45mins. However if attempting the section to Heddons mouth, this wastes crucial time: instead descend the headland.
A & B are described walking west along the coast path from Woody bay
A- first faint jungle path on the right, beyond the mansion. reaches barbed wire fence of a garden- possible to cross and gain private steps to a beach - follow this N to reac the start of ridge descent
B- walk along the coast path, until the first gate is reached. a path through the undergrowth leads back east and downhill, across a filed of ferns until the ridge is gained.
1-3 describe scrambles down to the coast
1- just as the descent of the ridge is getting more exposed, a path to the right leads back south for 20m to where a 'rope' is attached to a stake. Handover hand your way down this for over 100m til you drop onto a rock ledge. Dont let go.
2- continuing down the ridge, an obvious path leads left down and back to a corner line follow this down to a stake at a bend in the path where a faint path leads down and right. follow this, until possible to drop to a lower level and work back to a gully
3- from the stake in 2 use a rope in place to descend straight down the loose gully.
