Awesome line and position. The crux is very exposed but well protected; exciting; shame the holds were humid and slippery, so I eventually went around it. The remainder of the rock was a bit too chossy and sandy for my taste.

So good for the grade! All the fun starts under the roof. Some seriously hard moves to get over it then followed up by exciting traverse moves. Wish it had more traffic. One or two solid crux moves for the grade on pretty slimy holds which doesn't make it any easier.

Awesome wall to climb on, few little balancey moves but an easy route. I’d suggest the direct finish, looked to be a good trad route. Still awesome to climb over the crashing sea below. Plenty of spots for pro for the first half, a traverse then continue up the line of carrots

Good climb. I preclipped the first bolt to avoid a factor 2 fall from the start moves. It would be run out between bolts around the middle of the climb but a good cam placement is available other than that it’s not run out; you just have to look carefully for the carrots as some are not obvious.

Classic beginners route (for the point at least) Would stay 12 with half the holds and has plenty of bolts, Even I didn't get scared and I missed a couple. Super cool ledge to climb off. We had that perfect point day with the wind blowing so hard that your ropes blow back into your face. Very good indeed

I came here for this climb and it was well worth the track, despite of bit spooginess at low and awkward little cave which you shouldn't climb in as I found out.

Really nice climb, relatively easy. Route is a little tricky to follow, there is a line of carrots that run straight vertical but seem slightly right to what the climb is. We paralleled the arete and then straight to the top and you pop out right on the rings for the belay spot. Take 6 ring bolts for the climb, that will give you the option of which route to take if you choose the carrots Plenty of spots for gear, not too strenuous and the crashing ocean below is surreal *abseil down to ledge, there are 2 carrots at the belay point, they can be easy to miss you will see the vertical carrot on the steps to the right when you are a few metre above.

nice fun route, especially around half way.. Tried desperately to climb the crux section at the finger crack by using only the crack to jamb but couldn't.. climbed the crux section 4 times up and down but every time had to resort to face holds.. determined to come back and jamb that section..

If you get a little excited over exposure then you will be foaming at the mouth on this one. The most ridiculous position: waves crashing below you, wind, lots of air and multiple whales breaching about 50m away over your shoulder.

Top roped but the climbing was fun. I was more impressed with then position and wandered around a bit over interesting looking features. Just made the abseil on a 60m rope - possibly only due to rope stretch so be careful as this may also depend on how you build your anchor.
