Description

Past the First Bay, the Second Cove holds a wealth of new climbing. The middle area hots a scatter of boulders likely torn off from the cliffside; similar to the first bay but with much higher density. Far to the right (facing the ocean) are a few established climbs off the face, though most remains untouched. Far to the left is an easy access to the underside. The few established boulders are of top quality. And if there is a rain spell there is even a hermit cave for shelter.

Getting There

Further along the East Coast Trail (past the arrows sign) there is another accessible area. Note the scramble down begins at a small green tree. A rope can be set up off it for balance during the descent (not full body weight). It should be hiked with very high caution, especially with dislodged rocks. Hugging the left "face" an entry small ledge welcomes you.

This area has a dangerous approach, be very careful and go one person at a time. Rocks are usually dislodged on the way down. I attached a fixed line to the tree at the top to have something to grab on the way down (on 03/10/2015). With the fixed line it is fairly easy to go straight down the grassy ridge at the left side of the descent. If you use the rope, coiling it under the tree when you're done will help preserve it.
