Nice climb right from the sea. 3 sections with the first being a short verticla section and a small traverse, followed by a long face climb up to a horizontal break in the rock. From here is the crux, pull up on another sideways crack, traverse left and up to an undercling and make your way to the anchor.

3 out of 5 stars Can you hear me?

climb is easy until the top where the superb undercling fades out making you stretch up to the next decent hold. the middle section is usually climbed to the right on good holds, but if you like tiny pebbles to climb on, the slab in the middle is like 5 boulder problems in a row (good to say you've done it) and makes the climb a bit more consistent!
Can be difficult to hear your belayer if the longtails are whipping by!
