Amanda enjoying the very comfortable belay station...

Description 

The first pitch requires the most thought and care as its a little loose.
1st pitch 40m (set anchor with 2 slings and a cam). Nice foot placement so your not hanging.
2nd pitch with a lot of vegetation but easy climbing.
3rd a short pitch with lots of exposure
4th top out with amazing views

Location 

At the brimstone head trail, head right sticking close to the rock and go as far as you can that the sea will allow. Look up and find a big green wet crack. Start right of this.

Protection 

A selection of cams nothing bigger than a BD camalots 4
Smaller to mid size nuts multiples required
