The large amphitheater in the center of the cliff. The most tide dependent section of the cliff as well as the steepest. Home to some of the islands hardest routes and some open projects as well.
From the top of the cliff by the ruins of a stone tower walk right about 300 feet and locate 2 sets of bolts. the left most of the two is the rappel. rap down to the ledge. the traverse in from the left wall is not recommended as any rise in the tide or a wave splashing the ledge can leave you stuck. its wise to leave a rap line in place to jug out if the tides start coming in
