A fairly big block (30 meters tall) with a short approach and 2 nearby neighbors, those being Disco Buttress and Apprentice Rock. There is at least a full day's worth of climbing here to keep you busy if you are inclined to visit. The rock here is the same as for much of the area, compact, hard and in some places, sharp. Crack climbers might consider taping up. There are climbs on Eastwardly and Southerly aspects of this rock and it's several neighbors, as well as a few north facing routes where one can seek shelter from not only sun, but also wind and even light rain if those are a problem.
Approach via the North Parking (see Area page) and head NE along the coast on a trail for maybe 10 minutes, following it until some large cliffs are seen. The first of the obviously climbable tall cliffs is a large block on your right side, called School Gate. The East and South Faces of this contain several sport and Trad lines, and along it's North face there is a protected Gully that contains a surprisingly good and long sport climb or two.

The grade will depend on how directly you do the route, but will be in the 5.11 range.Climb up past 2 bolts to a technical crux, where a taller climber can clip the third bolt before risking it (be mindful of the rocks behind you).
