The Whitewater Wall offers the largest concentration of high quality, single pitch routes on the peninsula. Another selling points is its easy access, specifically the fact that a rappel entrance is not required. The deal clincher is the huge ledge at the cliff base that makes route access, and lounging between climbs, a real pleasure.

Routes here are 45-50m long, so two ropes are handy for the descent if not topping out.

Getting There 

From the campground, head west towards the sea. Once at the cliff top, follow the rim ~100 yds north to a large cairn, where you should be able to identify a 3rd class descent route. Follow this about half-way to the sea, then turn right (south) and follow large blocks to a down-climb in a dihedral that leads to the massive terrace below Whitewater Wall. The wall is easily identified by a long, diagonal dike that bisects the wall. This is the classic, "Apline".
