A steep line with great holds and good protection. P1 (90' 5.8) follows cracks for 60', then moves right (crux) and up to a good stance (can be split). P2 (80' 5.8-) continues up the steep, juggy crack, to arrive on a big ledge, then follows a crack in the back wall above the ledge to finish (can be split).


From the coastguard station descend Ash Can Gully until an abseil seems sensible (or down climb carefully). The start is reached (at low tide - beware big waves) by moving west a few metres. South Face Direct takes a line of chunky cracks just left of the right hand side of this buttress.


Standard rack, cams up to Friend 3.5. Use long slings and double ropes to avoid rope-drag.
