The following is located a little further along under the large nose roof sticking out from the headland, just before you turn the corner. The following is located a little further along under the large nose roof sticking out from the headland, just before you turn the corner. Rockpool and The Drain can be climbed at any time, but the other 3 climbs will get your crashpad soaking wet unless you bring a hose or bucket to drain the rockpool. They are worth the effort though and once drained it will remain dry until it rains or until extremely high swell.

The following steep boulder is located a little further along under the large nose roof sticking out from the headland, just before you turn the corner towards Palm Beach. Rockpool and The Drain can be climbed at any time, but the other 3 climbs will get your crashpad soaking wet unless you bring a hose or bucket to drain the rockpool. They are worth the effort though and once drained it will remain dry until it rains or until extremely high swell.
