DescriptionThe problem starts from a long thin ledge overhanging the water on the right side of the cave, and finishes in a pocket in the cliff face large enough to sit or stand in. From the left side of the thin ledge, climb up along the arete of the formation to the pocket right above (V2). Alternately, from the right side of the ledge, climb straight up to the large pocket holds and then traverse left and up to the top (V1). The crux is the first move or two getting above the ledge from hanging in the water. Watch for sharp and/or slightly loose rocks near the top.
LocationThe problem starts on the right side of the cave as you are facing it from the water. There is an obvious, thin ledge at the bottom of a piece of the cliff wall that completely overhangs the water. This lip can be inaccessible if the tide is too low. Jump down or use the rope swing that is anchored on the cliff above this route.
