DescriptionEasily identified by the large slab towards the right of the Main Area. This is the Morning Slab; the large, tree-covered ledge at the top is Lunchtime Ledge (it is indeed a good place for lunch); from here to the top of the cliff is the Evening Wall.
You won't find any really hard climbs here, but it is a great place for the beginning leader, or as a warm-up before some of the harder routes just to the right on the Central Buttress. Watch out for the polish on the more popular lines!
Getting ThereFrom the top of the gorge, the best access is down one of the trails to either side of the Main Area. The one to climber's right is paved for most of the way, while the one to the left is just a dirt trail; however both are quite visible and easy to find. There are a few places to park just off the A4 right at the bottom of this wall, but the largest parking area is at the base of the Sea Walls, just a short walk away.
