This is absolutely, one of the most exciting routes I've ever been on! Completely exposed with the surf crashing below, the full committment of rapping in and (gulp!) pulling the rope!

Start up the face and soon begin traversing to the right above the overhangs and onto the pocketed triangular wall above the cave. Finish by going straight up on the left and finish up a short corner (crux).


Find a suitable place to rap down to one of the small ledges on the left (south) side of the cave.


Standard rack up to #3 c4. Considering how brutal the surf was the whole time I was there, I'd be weary of how far to rap down before building an anchor to start the route.
