The largest part of Flatrock containing the vast majority of climbs including the longer routes and a few two pitch climbs towards the northern end. The area receives morning sun and the temperature can change dramatically without the sun if the wind is blowing.
Park at the pull-off on Wades Lane and walk back along the road to the ATV trail before the houses as in the attached picture. When you meet the main trail cross straight over to a trail down the other side. This trail leads down to some loose rock that you need to scramble down to reach the face which stretches north from the bottom of the trail.
NOTE: The old trail directly above the pull off has recently been marked with private property signs. Please avoid using this trail to prevent potential access issues. The new trail is just as easy, if not a little easier anyway.

One of the best climbs at Main Face, though rarely done. There are 2 possible starts about 8 feet apart, which join each other about 30 feet up. The left start can be belayed from a ledge that is always above the waterline, while the right start must be belayed from a ledge that is often underwater. This route is best done when the tide is very low, or by rappelling down a fixed line on Last Chance. It does not seep as much as Last Chance. For the left start, climb a thin crack to a sloping led...[more] Browse More Classics in International
