Description 

part tidal granite sea cliff


Getting There 

For all the cliffs in the southern half of the bay; locate a shallow valley at plateau level, which sometimes has a small stream running down it. This is just off the coastal path and some 300 metres north of the Old Light. Descend the volley and continue down a broad grassy spur to reach on area of Iarge blocks approximately 70 metres above sea level. A 70-metre abseil from
good block belays leads down a sleep grassy slope on the northern side of the spur into the brood, open gully beneath First Buttress North. It is also possible to scramble down this approach with extreme caution.
