S of European Cove.
Approach. After the last zig-zag on the track to Cathedral Wall etc look for a track on the L - pink tape. This track continues S along the cliff lines to come out at 4 Mile, on the main highway. Follow it past Euopean Cove to a branch heading R. About 10 minutes. Cairns mark the way to this cove. Below the last cairn lurks a low bolt which can be used to rap into the cove if the rocks below are greasy. Climbs are described Lto R.
On the R side of the cove above the rocking rock is a double groove.

Amazing what a young man will do for 6 bolts! Hard start leads to a struggle over a roof, then cruise to DBA.

On the arete to the L edge of the south facing wall, is the result of what happens when a committee puts up a climb. It serves as a warm up for the warm up

On the south side of the cove is a double groove which leads to a crack through an overlap. 5 bolts to DBA. Awkward to start the first groove, then exit L from it to rest. Desperate to enter second groove. Excellent rock. On the S wall are 2 short gear routes to a shared DBA
