Nice climb up from the sea, chimney start (or an alternative 6b start to the left) up to a platform with a long cave behind it. From there a face climb up slightly overhanging granite, with holds everywhere to the top. If the anchor is set too high you wont be able to reach it due to a very overhanging top.

4 out of 5 stars Stunning views

Great climb, but get there early, not for the people but for the sun! after 11am, it comes over the cliff and melts your belayer before your eyes!
The climb also has a harder (6b) start which traverses to the left along some underclings. cool mooves but you dont want to fall.
The top section has an array of jugs adn you can choose any of about 5 different routes to finish on. If you go far over to the right, look out for the 'fist of gems' in a mystery hole!
Very sharp rock
