This wall was first utilised as a deep water soloing location in January 2005 by Megan Wilks (now Cree), Tom Cree, Quang Doan and Adam Clay. A long-time favourite spot for cliff divers and scuba enthusiasts the first few climbing outings drew considerable interest from fishermen and swimmers.
It derives its name from the route Backslapper which was so-named following a massive back-slap fall from the top by Tom Cree who came off while repeating his heel hook finish of the route.

Start at the water's edge on the far right side of the wall, pull yourself out of the water and traverse left under the overhang to the bottom of backslapper, then follow backslapper route up to the cliff top. Wet hands make this a touch tricky.
