Description 

Climb the only large corner on the sea facing side of the rock. This route is primarily used to set up a top rope using the bolts on the ends of the rock.

Protection 

It will take some ingenuity to set up a rope on top of this route, though it's doable. Bring cams, LONG slings, and brains to set up tne top rope.

Due to the nature of the route, most people don't bother. Just climb it, and don't fall!

The corner itself is much harder than 5.3. The face to the right is much easier, with several variations.

The corner is also listed as a 5.8 (sunset corner) on this site??? The face to the right is easier, but still probably a 5.5-5.6. I led the southwest corner of the crag to get up and set up some top ropes, however its a little more exposed, but probably 5.5ish. What about the corner on the NE side that you see when you first get to the rocks?
