About Wave Wall:

The WAVE WALL: is located about twenty minutes walking past The Orange Cave and offers a wide variety of quality routes. Unfortunately, it is only approachable during calm seas. Boots and gloves recommended for this approach. Shade in the afternoon, about 2:00 pm in winter, earlier in spring.
Nearest town or city:
Directions: Hike east on the ironshore towards two huge boulders, the first of which has a sharp, pointy top. Pass above this rock, then below the second one, a somewhat retangular pinnacle. If you can't pass below this rock due to the waves (even by timing your crossing between waves) then you probably won't be able to cross the sloping shingle beyond either. Now scramble through a boulder field at mid-height and do a 3rd class traverse (when dry) across sloping rock to one of several nice shelves.
Latitude, Longitude:
Access Issues: Big waves can make this section extremely dangerous.
