Steep, sustained, climbing to some wild formations including large umbrellas near the top. A very enjoyable route.

Location

This route is the first line encountered in the cove as you enter from the north. It can easily be rappelled or you can drop in near the beginning of the cove and walk the beach at low tide.

Protection

A rack of screws.
