Description

The Buffet Wall is arguably the gem of Denny Cove. It is a stunning wall, offering long routes on steep sandstone. Most of the climbs here are 12 and up, but you can also find some 11s as well.

This wall gets sun all day.

Getting There

When taking the main approach trail, stay straight for the quickest approach. An alternative approach is to take the stone stairs to the left and follow the cliffline.
