Big, feels like El Cap after the other sports climbs in the area. Climb up with increasing difficulty to a bridging session then a pair of rooflets and finish at the 8th ring, a 50m rope just reaches.

Often wet, climbs the wall and horrendous undercling flake 10 Mm L of Rupture. Needs gear

FA: MIKLLAW, 1990

The classic of the crag. After the initial loose session in 'The Devil's sandpit" the climbing is excellent and reachy. Start some 60m L of Rupture of the Deep at a flake / corner about 10 m up. Move up R and back left to base of route, then follow a flake line over bulge and slab to rap ring, 7 rings en route.

FA: Mike Law, 1992

A short double roof crux. Start 10 L of Hot Axis up high, head up leftwards, thru roofs and up, 6 rings.

FA: Mike Law, 1992

Maximum pump for the grade.Also sandy and scary at times. Start at the R end of the wall, up wall past 3 rings to ledge, up past another and into cave. Clip ring on lip and move R 1m and up overhung line to top.

A reverent and exciting re-enactment of an old fisherman's route. Start at weakness 15m L of CC, around L edge of Bow Wall. Up and R, no pro, to ring anchor. An access route to the top of Sea Kwarry.

FA: Mike Myers, 1990

Stunning positions. I was hit by a wave on the lip while bolting in big seas. Either approach 20m left of bow Wall and climb roped up access rings (16) or:- Rap in from top 16m (you can clean holds) (approach via end of Ocean St, left 20m and over fence; down into fisherman's cave. rap off Ubolt on ground and large chipped thread at head height). Belay on 2 Ubolts in corner. Out left and up spacy arete.
