On the S side of the cove hanging over the sea is a striking off-width crack with a tempting steep wall on its R. Scramble carefully down to the jammed boulders at the foot of the crack and get a belay before starting:- Climb the wall to gain the crack, then layback or thrutch up this to anchor blocks with an easy walk off.
