Description

Though only a few climbs here, the beauty of the area make the 25 minute walk well worth it. The routes are North Facing and are shady for the majority of the day, and because of this they can also a bit slimy. Of course, the rain storm that hit before and while we were climbing did not help this slime factor.

There are five listed climbs here in John Byrnes guidebook, while there are seven listed in the Harper guide. Only three have been re-bolted with titanium glue-in bolts. The Titanium bolted climb furthest left, Poseidon ("12-something"), looks amazing but according to John Byrnes guide has yet to be red-pointed due to "frequent smarmy conditions".

If you continue just a little further beyond the crag, Neptune’s Cave is well worth exploring. It was the most extensive cave we visited on the island. So don't forget to bring a headlamp with you!

Getting There

Follow the North Side Road all the way to its end on the east side of the island. Park here and follow the obvious trail to the beach. Walk east along the beach toward a large pointed rock in the sea. As you get to the point where the cliffs begin to get closer to the water, look for an overhanging white face, bolts, and an old rusted on sling (unless it has been chopped).
