About Lower Gibraltar:

Just past Gibraltar Rock, park in the second turn-out on the left side of the road. Follow a trail down the hill from the turn-out which will drop you off at the anchors for "Rapture". Rap off the cold shuts (50m rope is more than sufficient - 65' face)to the prominent ledge below. Belay from the ledge (there is a rock to the left side of the ledge to thread a sling thru for your belay anchor). Not a large area, but if your waiting for some climbs to open up on Gibraltar proper, this area offers some nice views and some solitude.
