Description

A great setting and the blowhole on the hike in makes for an added bonus.

This wall gets sun until about 2:00 in Feb, a little earlier than Love Shack. Wait for calm seas for this approach because the wet sloping black rock at the foot of the wall is slippery and getting sucked into the ocean would probably kill you, but only after using the iron shore as a cheese grater first.

There are 19 routes from 5.8 to 12d.

Getting There

Take the south road all the way to the east end. Park and walk the beach past the Orange Cave, past a really cool blowhole to increasingly sharp ironshore. After about 20 minutes you'll reach the wall and the crux of the hike. If the black rock is wet from crashing waves, consider climbing at Orange cave. In either case take your time getting across the sloping base.
