Summary

A narrow slot with 8 m high walls. Many climbs can be bridged, or as described if face climbing only.

Description

Best to top rope due to closeness of walls.

Approach

To the North-East of the Slot, before The Surge. Walk-in from coast end is difficult due to rock pool. Abseil or lower in, or find an easy descent.

History

Someone put triple hex bolt belays at top (one set on north, one on south side) many years ago. Hex bolts may not fit all plates, may have to use wires.
