Description

A big, atmospheric zawn in a remote location, with a 100m abseil approach to add to the commitment. There is a large sea cave at the bottom of the zawn, which could be explored at low tide (but then you'd have to climb back up the first 15m of greasy rock to get to your route). It is common for seals to shelter here, and in the zawn, they provide good company for the belayer!

The rock is quality Lundy granite, though owing to its low angle, perhaps a bit more vegetated than other areas. The must-do route is American Beauty (HVS 5a, 5.8), which takes a clean line up crack systems in the slab.

Getting There

About 100m South of threequarter wall is a prominent outcrop at plateau level. Walk down the grassy slope directly below this outcrop for about 60m to large boulders that can be slung for the abseil. Take a long rope - it's almost 100m to the bottom!

An alternative approach can be made at low tide by scrambling/downclimbing the spur to the North of the zawn then walking along the zawn bed. This is described by the current guide book as particularly harrowing, and is infrequently used.
