Climb up slab to Horizontal crack, then Traverse left over water to bolt 30 feet up. Continue up and left to 2nd bolt, then straight up to top. Friction /face climbing with cool moves, great exposure. If you don't have gear for the crack, it is probably 5.5-5.6 to the first bolt.

3 out of 5 stars Don't climb at high tide

We tried this last weekend. High tide was coming in, and the base (and ideal belay position) is covered in barnacles. It's a bit of a dodgy climb to set a TR, better off leading this one. I got swamped by some waves while belaying - the tide can come in fast.

didn't have an alien, barnacles make slab climbing interesting over water!
