Description 

The third cove in Blackhead. Fair number of boulders down there. Also a seawall that looks like really cool really hard stuff. Really interesting problems. Very diverse terrain.

Getting There 

NOTE: Tree Rappel Setup Needed, Ascenders needed to exit
Past the approach to the second cove. Go along the East Coast Trail. At some point there is an opening that diverges off the trail. Rappel set-up off of two trees. Scramble down on rappel past the small rock ledge into the cove.
