4 out of 5 stars hard finish

Nice face. The new starting variation is worthwhile. At the rest best not clip the bolt around the corner it creates too much rope drag. The finish was hard, balancy moves and small holds which were all slimy from the high humidity in the cave and the salty air. Probably better to climb in the dry season.

stark line coming out of the cave, awesome view. after the climb and we went through cave then rappelled down a pitch. there are ladders and a very obvious cave path through many rooms. bring a headlamp!
