An amazing cliff which is home to some amazing rock and also some sleepy seals.

Access: 

Next cliff along from Wave Wall. Boulder hop along the coast until you are directly below the cliff and wonder look for the unlikely narrow entrance.
Access is dependant on a 10m tidal section so time your approach wisely, also be weary of lurking seals hiding in the rocks.

Walk time: 
1.25 Hours

  From the bolted anchor ledge. Start up the wide crack which forms into a flake for which to place gear in. A few cranky moves on edges which is protected by a bolt. Then up and left to the arete/Flake to clip the anchors.
