Pitch 1 5.10d 10 bolts, 105 feet.
Climb upwards on tufas and stalactites, pulling a few steeper bulges along the way.
Pitch 2 5.11a 6 bolts 60 feet
Negotiate the steep start, then head up easier ground to the next anchor.
Pitch 3 5.11b 11 bolts 80 feet
Continue up through another steep bulge, to some easier ground. Hit the first crux where the steepness becomes vertical, the holds dramatically shrink in size, and the rock becomes sharp. Snag a rest on the next moderate section which goes back to the nice orange limestone and pull the final steep moves to the anchor.
The guides mention using 2 ropes to rappel from pitch 2, to try and keep your ropes dry, If I was to do it again I would only bring 1 70m rope and rappel with it on the last rap into the boat.
Rappel from the top pitch to Pitch 2, backclip a few bolts to maintain contact with the wall. From here you could rap to the ocean with two ropes or rappel back to the start of the route and do a short rappel back into the boat. All anchors are set up for rappel.
