5 out of 5 stars Tried it on top rope first

I'm glad I top roped this first. Luckily the section towards the bottom with loose rock has two well placed bolts. The region before and after the last bolt would be quite an eye opener on lead. Make sure to be feeling on top of your game when you lead this one!

If you don't feel comfortable mounting the bulge with the last bolt just below your ankles (noting the bulge below that you would land on), you can traverse left, clip the two bolts on the north face and easily, and safely top out there.

4 out of 5 stars Classic

This is the best climb on the beach. Careful of the loose hold after the first bolt.
